I attach a jpeg and send it to my email and it comes out as winmail.dat and can't be opened. HELP.
Did you ever find out the answer to your question? I am running into the same issue!
I am in the same boat,
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Problem solved, but of course not by Verizon, but good old Google searches. The problem is you are sending or receiving emails from an Outlook 2007 or 2010 user. It sends emails using RTF and gives you a "Winmail.dat" error but even changing my email settings to HTML didn't work. Here's the fix that worked perfectly for me: Outlook 2010 and the age old winmail.dat problem. Just go directly to the the second post in the forum thread. I suggest doing it the manual way. It was quick and easy.
Hope this helps!
Correct me if I am wrong but that appears to be a Microsoft fix and that is not much help on my Andriod phone which is where I have the problem.
The problem is not your Droid. It's the Microsoft email client sending the email. The emails you receive have the "winmail.dat" attachments because of the way Outlook sends emails. If you send yourself an email from let's say Gmail or Yahoo with an attachment, you will find the attachment opens.
