    you may not need to actually open it.

    what mail software are you using?

    one case when i have seen these win mail.dat things are when they come from a widows mail client who actually received a mac email. when they send it back to you, it can come back in this format. or, it could be a microsloth rtf formated thing.

    in any event, in entourage, you will occasionally see this winmail.dat as an attachemnt, but, in fact, entourage is actually showing you the entire email itself in the body of the email you received.

    Yeah, you can ignore winmail.dats: there's some special way of futzing outgoing mail for Windows power users that enables them to send those annoying little files for you to scratch your head over...
