am receiving "winmail.dat" files from PC users sending attachments.  Am using html on my pc?  Must I change to plain text?

Hi there


I am a PC user, but use an iphone4s for my phone.  Until recently  all was great, but a couple days ago I upgraded phone to IOS 6, and now all attachments sent to me (word, pdf, etc) arrive on the phone in the form of a "winmail.dat" file.  I have read that having senders changed to plain text email will help with this, but seems unrealistic to believe everyone will comply.


Is there another option/fix please?



iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1
