Outlook2000 and winmail.dat files

By hballou ·
Frequently, I send Word Doc Formatted files as attachments using Outlook2000. The recipients complain that they do not receive the attached file and they get a win.dat file which they cannot open. How do I correct this?

There is a Knowledge base article about this problem:
