    My friend is using Microsoft Outlook Web Access and is getting winmail.dat attached to all her emails. I know to turn off RTF if it were a full version of Outlook, but Web Access doesn't have that option. What can I do to make the winmail.dat attachments go away?

    She's just running Windows XP, though. The Microsoft page says that the patch applies to Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Standard Edition.

    That's because that patch needs to be applied to the Exchange server she is accessing with OWA, it is not a problem on her end.

    So there's nothing that can be done unless the server at her university applies the patch. All right. Thanks.
