How can I decode the winmail.dat attachment?
Is it included with PowerTcp Lib?

Are you referring to the winmail.dat file that is in an email opened by Outlook or Outlook express? If so, I think that is the name that they give an inline attachment that does not have a filename. The attachment is not encoded it's just a renamed version of the original file.

If you know the name of the original, you should just be able to rename it.

I don't think that will work, since I send to myself three files attach (3 pdf files) but I receive only one winmail.dat...

This is a know issue with Outlook when you use RTF mail format. But I can't tell eveybody in the world to don't use RTF, should be one way. (Yahoo mail open fine the attachment)

I would like to know if powertcp mail include a TNEF decoder or plan to include it.

I'll write up a suggestion and have someone contact you to evaluate the feasability.

Hello,
I appreciate that this is a very old thread, but needs must :)

Did support for winmail.dat ever get implemented?

Many thanks,
David

We use a product called winmail_opener to strip off the winmail.dat & decode it. It has always worked really well for us.
