It's a Microsoft Exchange "feature". Since Exchange supports rich-text email (bold, italic, multiple fonts, etc.), and Internet email doesn't, any email sent from Exchange to a non-Exchange mail reader will contain an Attachment called WINMAIL.DAT. If you use Exchange, you won't see this file, and the message will retain its formatting. However, it can be confusing for those who don't use Exchange (You, I, and the majority of the Internet population), and have no use for this file.

 

In MS Outlook and Outlook Express:

 

On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format (or "Send") tab.

Under the Send tab is the message format list, select Plain Text or HTML(NOT Rich Text Format), and then click OK.
