Dealing with winmail.dat

I finally came across a solution for all of the idiots people who insist on sending attachments via Outlook with Rich Text turned on. MS designed Outlook without any concern that other email programs might not know what to do with the albatross known as winmail.dat. Thankfully, tnef can get the attachments out of the winmail.dat file so that they can be dealt with. It's easier to use that than to try to show the average Outlook user how not to send everything in Rich Text. Did I mention that I hate MS?
