Hi guys...
i use thunderbird from many months without problem, but now i have a problem in attachment menagement.

I don't know where is the problem, but now i change email with person who use outlook and if i send email with an attachment, my attachment in outlook is not correctly converted.

Any attachment is converted in winmail.dat attachment and is impossible to use it.

What can i do?
I search in thunderbird some configuration to do for attachment, but i don't find any!!

Now i use Outlook, i NEED to send and recive correctly attachment, but i would like to comeback in thunderbird as soon as possible :-)

Thanks for any suggestion.


ps: i try to find some post or bug here, but i don't find any :-)........

Thunderbird doesn't send winmail.dat - Outlook does.

Here's a bug on it:

And if you do a search for "winmail.dat", then you'll find several of posts.
