Excel attachments

  Digital 20:02 31 Oct 07

Using Thunderbird I get e-mails with Excel files attached (.xls) but they are received as winmail.dat files which won't open.

The same e-mail sent to my wife, who uses Netscape 7, is received as .xls & opens OK with Excel. If she then forwards that e-mail to me it is received as .xls & opens OK.

Anyone got any ideas what's amiss?

I think this is linked from VOGs solution.
I had this problem when receiving account details from my letting agent.

Thank you both. I've sent the solution to the sender & hope he'll change Outlook as suggested, if not I'll use the Biblet software.
