MAPI, winmail.dat and gmail

Hi Experts,

I have limited information on this and I'm trying to gather info about this.  We are using MAPI with Outlook and emails going out to gmail users get the winmail.dat file attached.  Obviously we don't want this - how can we make sure the winmail.dat is not attached?

Thank you!

Usually happens when you're Outlook is set to send RTF formatted email. You can have it send as HTML with one option:
Outlook 2007: Select Tools > Options > Email Format > Internet Options. Select Convert to HTML format.
Outlook 2010 and 2013: Select File > Options > Mail and then scroll to the bottom of the dialog. Select Convert to HTML format.
