TNEFs Enough for Mac

21 November 2019

Extract winmail.dat embedded files.

What is TNEFs Enough for Mac

TNEF's Enough allows Macs to read and extract files from Microsoft TNEF stream files. The files are usually received via email from Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Outlook users. You will usually receive an attachment named "winmail.dat." If someone has even sent you a message or file and all you have received is a "winmail.dat" file then you need TNEF's Enough to open it and extract the embedded file.

What's new in TNEFs Enough

Version 3.8:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.11 or later

  • Updated for Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina).
  • Corrected for better Dark Mode support.

I've used this for years, it's a great solution for the dreaded winmail.dat attachment. The whopping price of free you can't beat it, but consider a donation to the Dev too. All you need to do is to associate the winmail.dat file with TNEFs Enough once. Just drag to your desktop, right click and click Get Info. Then change the Open with option and hit change all. After that if you see that ugly Microsoft winmail.dat attachment just double click on it and you're good to go.

Tried to open three different 'Winmail.dat' files. Each of them gives a similar result, like this: https://i.imgur.com/26zyhSa.png (Could not be opened...) Seems useless.

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. Alan

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 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.

the version linked to from this page is for powerpc's only. Go to the author's web site to get one that works with intel macs. works well, I'd like to be able to double click a file to open it rather than just have it ask where to save it. Also, quick look would be a neat feature to have.

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).

It does the job well until now to extract many kinds of files without problem. However, UI and behavior needs a bit more TLC. Drag&drop to open files does not work although manually opening from File menu is working. And a few other minor UI issues. But I should first say "Thank you" to the developer as I have a simple solution now.

Thank you so much for creating this software. I was a victim of a winmail.dat attachment from a Luddite who could not understand why what she "always does" didn't work for my Mac. A quick Google search and POW you helped me get what I needed fast and easy. I'm so grateful people like you do what you do. Thanks again.

...or just ask the person sending you the E-mail to NOT save the E-mail as RTF (which is how the conflict of windat is created in the first place. Ask them to save the Text as "TEXT" or "DOC" and that'll sort the problem.

This is a must-have app. I just switched to a Mac from Windows, and from Outlook to Apple Mail, and couldn't figure out what to do with the winmail.dat files. With TNEF's Enough in my dock, I just drag the file onto the TNEF's Enough icon, and then choose which files to extract and where I want them to go. Great piece of work! (I can't understand why this functionality isn't built into Apple Mail.)

Does wonders! This is exactly what I was looking for and I love the fact that you are able to set preferences for what happens after it decodes. This is one feature that would be cool to have: build a plug-in to OS X server / Postfix so that it automatically does this for all incoming mail.

It almost worked perfectly for me. I fed it a winmail.dat file from a message that I had moved from Outlook to an IMAP account. TNEF's Enough was able to extract the attachment out of the winmail.dat file, but it also truncated the file name.

Great app, does just what it says it does shame the Entourage and Outlook teams can't just spend five minutes and work this one out between them ! I hate it when people in the office send me meeting invitations that in Outlook I just 'accept' but in Entourage I have to read the mail, copy it into the calendar and reply to them that I can come (and of course, that doesn't update their calendar for them to let them know I've accepted)

Worked just great once I figured out how to find the winmail.dat file I wanted to open: I had to copy the attachment from Eudora to the desktop and then open it from within TNEF's Enough; then it put the openable Word files in a folder on the desktop, no sweat! Fine piece of work. Thanks much.
