Mysterious attachment in e-mail RRS feed

  • Question

  • Which forum should I ask this question:

    I sent an e-mail via Outlook 2002 with three recipients.
    It is a small, simple, plain text e-mail with no attachments.

    When I processed the MIME contents on the receiver side (in my C# app), it had an attachment called winmail.dat.
    Why the attachment, and what would be in it? How can I view the contents of this .dat file?
