Winmail Opener could be useful for anyone who sends or receives e-mail in one of the older versions of Microsoft Outlook such as 97 or 2000 (winmail.dat). This utility allows users to view and extract the contents from messages from these sources. The rich-text message contents and attachments from these Outlook applications are not supported by several e-mail clients that are used today and Winmail Opener is a freeware solution to this problem.
Winmail has a traditional Windows look and feel to it with drop-down menus. It also has full Windows drag-and-drop capabilities so it is easy to move text and attachments from an e-mail to a document or other location. Text is displayed in a center window with a scroll bar with attachments in a sidebar window. This freeware application supports users in 13 languages and is small in size, so it uses little memory or disk space.
This application downloads quickly, and runs stably without affecting PC performance. Winmail Opener works well and costs nothing, and can help solve a big compatibility problem.
