Default BB converts jpeg files sent from my computer (with same email adress) to winmail.dat

Please Login to Remove!

I recently downloaded the latest version of bb from appworld. Since then I cannot open attachments sent from my computer (using the same email address)When I send a .jpeg file and cc myself, I cannot open the attachment on my bb, as my bb has converted/received the file in winmail.dat form - even though I sent it in .jpeg format - can someone help pleasea?? I tried to download winmail converter from internet, but that also didn't work.

winmail.dat is a microsoft problem. Your BB isn't converting it, it is the Exchange server that you are connected to that is causing the problem.
