Default Attachments = winmail.dat

Please Login to Remove!

I've searched the forums and can't find an answer to this one...

I just got my new 8700g, and every attachment that I received on an e-mail becomes "winmail.dat"

jpg's, pdf, doc, everything... and no "open attachment" option in the menu. What am I missing???

Thanks, but nothing there helps. I never had this problem with my 7100t, and the e-mails when received in my regular inbox are fine, and i have no option to open attachments on my BB...

Cause
BlackBerry Internet Service is not compatible with rich text format (RTF) messages created with Outlook 97 or Outlook 2000.
The BB technical knowledge center knows many things

Thanks Phil!

I searched the BBF for about 30 minutes and couldn't find anything!
