Microsoft mail mayhem

I’ve been receiving a lot of attachments from people recently called winmail.dat and have been unable to open them in Thunderbird and I’ve assumed until now that there was something wrong my end but apparently not. It’s due to a Microsoft propriety setting which the other person hasn’t reset. But I’ve found a tool called TNEF’s Enough which opens the file and lets you extract the contents. You can download it from and if you have a lot of windoze friends, I suggest you download it – it’ll be cheaper than buying them all a MacBook.
