Winmail.dat attachments, why are the being converted.. what do I do?
Not sure if this is already a thread.
I have an iPhone 5, works perfectly.Love it!... But.....
I have accounts with BTinternet, Gmail and iCloud.. and my Office work account.
From the same terminal running Microsoft exchange : Win 7 / Outlook 2010 I send a PDF and a word doc (small sizes 14kB), to all 3 accounts and a friend whould has the same level of iOS firmware 7.1.1. His account is a microsoft exchange server work account.
Outlook settings are set to "Convert mail to HTML" from via Toolbar : "File" - Menu :- "Options" - Pop-up "Mail" - Heading Mail format at bottom of scroll down screen.
Apart from the BTinternet account,getting the annoying winmail.dat, all recieve the correct format Ok. A few sites point to the iPhone at fault... but how can the phone be to blame? What do I do? Tried changing the "convert mail format" to "RTF" and "Plain".. every single instance has the same result. BT blames Apple! Hey-ho.
I checked the portal/web page for BTMail, and the sent documents are sitting there correctly, so I assume it is somewhere between their server "forwarding" and the iPhone.
Many thanks all, and kind regards.
