Opening winmail.dat files in Thunderbird

Outlook will attach items and forwarded email embedded in a “winmail.dat” file. The winmail.dat file is a TNEF file and Mozilla Thunderbird does not process them natively. The LookOut plugin for Thunderbird will allow you to see the attachments embedded within the winmail.dat file and treat them like normal attachments.
