WINMAIL.DAT is supposed to be a format that is decoded by Outlook/Exchange.  Sometimes this arises because a spam filter or other intermediary cannot translate the Rich Text Formatted messages.  If you use a spam filter add the DMV sender/domain to your whitelist.  Otherwise, see if the DMV has another format that the message can be sent in (plain text).
