Outlook Sends winmail.dat file instead of attachment to iPhone

Outlook 2010 is sending Word and Excel attachments as winmail.dat to just ONE iPhone user.  Everyone else on iOS receives the correct attachment.  

I would blame it on the phone, but other users on the network with the same version of Office 2010 are sending the correct attachment to that one iOS user.  Again, it's just one computer sending that the end-user receives the attachment as winmail.dat. Again, it's just one computer sending that the end-user receives the attachment as winmail.dat.
Thanks.

Check the contact for that user on the sender's Outlook and verify what it is set to.  Sometimes Outlook Rtf causes issues so you could try setting to plain text.

Email properties of a Contact

Open the Contact and double click on the email address. Changes made here apply to all messages sent to this person. Use this to override the setting in Internet options


Email properties of an address in the To field of a new message:


Double click on the address in the To field. If the address is in your Contacts folder, their contact opens; if the address is not in your Contacts, the email properties dialog opens. Use this setting to “one-off” the formatting when sending meeting requests or RTF formatted messages to Internet addresses. This will override the setting in Options dialog’s Internet options.

Turns out that the contact must have been corrupted.  I deleted the auto complete in Outlook and deleted the corresponding contact as well, created a new contact and then tested again and the attachment came through correctly.
Thanks for the assistance.
