    Agreed - Sometimes my "clients" (users) have received "important"
    attachments contained within winmail.dat files. I end up having to
    extract them via the tnef utility. However, I do purge my quarantine
    regularly if they don't contain anything besides text since the text is
    usually duplicated in the text portion of the message. I do, however,
    take the time to educate them so that they can educate their senders. It
    helps to explain that "Outlook Rich Text" isn't readable by other
