O365 mailbox users receive Winmail.dat file from on-prem users in Hybrid setup

We have Hybrid environment configured a few weeks ago. Started migrating users from on-Prem to O365.
Everything was working ok for the last two weeks. This morning cloud (O365) users started complaining that they receive Winmail.dat file attachments from On-premises users. Nothing that we changed on our end.  When on-prem users send email to O365 user, winmail.dat file is getting attached. Our users have formatted signature in the body of the email.
According to some articles, the recommendation is to set MailFlow\RemoteDomains\Default\Use Rich text format to NEVER.
After making this change and waiting for a couple of hours basically nothing changed.
Any thoughts?

Please see if this solution enclosed in this link works for you. A change apparently made to Exchange.

I already made that change on my Office 365 admin center.
I made that change this morning but still receive Winmail.Bat file when email sent from onprem to O365.

If I am not mistaking this change has to be made on the receiving side right ?

Possibly - ask clients to look at the link and change their end to see if that works.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Did not understand what link ?

Also, do you have an idea how long does it take for TNEFEnabled setting to take effect in o365?
