Winmail.dat an unwanted attachement
« on: March 24, 2011, 04:46:34 PM »
Can anyone help me get rid of the Winmail.dat attachment that seems to go out with my Filemaker emails run through Outlook (via Sendmail)?  I have gone into my Outlook preferences and made sure that all settings are "text only".  Regular Outlook emails to same email addresses do not come with the attachment so it has to be some setting in Sendmail.  My email is created as plain text with no html formatting.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What version of Outlook Sendmail are you using?

Does this "Winmail.dat" file get sent when using the demo file?
Here are both versions of the demo, can you test with these:

Outlook SendMail v1:
Outlook SendMail v2:
