Functional and free!

Excellent and simple tool to deal with those annoying occasions when you get an winmail.dat attachment.

It might be nice if it was integrated more into mail apps but in reality I can probably manage to download it and in any case with Postbox which I use I have set it to open .dat files with TNEF and will see how that works.

Well done a great tool for an annoying problem.

This software is good, but is it possible to have one where you don't have to open the file using this app separately. i.e. the software can be integrated with Mail.

Yes, version 3.2.1 works perfectly on my new MacBook Pro. I now use it to download email attachments sent via Outlook on a PC (I've transferred a couple of music files from my PC via email that way). Follow the advice given by Bradsmith74 and a double click on any .dat attachment to an email message will open up, then drag the file to where you want it (in my case, I dragged .m4a files into iTunes on the dock - loads right up and works great).

Version 3.2.1 was flawless extracting a .pdf file from a winmail.dat file I received as a Thunderbird attachment on my iMac (Intel) running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Installation and functionality is very straight forward on the developers website so you might want to look there. Just select the dock icon and use the File menu to select the file you want to open, then select the attachment and either double click or use the Extract command to save it. Well done Josh.

I have used this twice. It works great! Simple to use. No need to use Apple's Mail app. (I use Thunderbird.) Difficulties with .dat files are a thing of the past.

I can't believe it's taken me so long to finally find this program and realize that it was solvable. I have one vendor that I have a ton of email problems with, the winmail.dat file has been the latest issue. I've fought with this problem for sometime. I installed this app, followed the file association as Bradsmith74 mention and it works great. I can now open those pesky files and extract just what I need.

Version 2.2 does NOT work very well on my new Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard. It fails to properly display the names of the embedded files in the "Embedded Files" tab. But the "Attributes Tab" does display the proper file names of the embedded files in the winmail.dat file.

Switched to Version 2.0 which runs just fine in Snow Leopard (using Rosetta). Now the proper files names are being displayed in the "Embedded Files" tab.

Installed TNEF v2.2 on a second Mac running Snow Leopard. Same problem

I would suggest that people avoid using version 2.2 and go back to version 2.0 until this bug is fixed. Version 2.0 runs just fine on Snow Leopard using Rosetta.

P.S. There is a similar program on the Mac App Store called Letter Opener Lite. I prefer it over TNEF but Letter Open Lite costs $7. If you want you can buy the full version of Letter Opener for $30 but I do not see the need (and I like to avoid using Apple Mail Plugins).
