No pros as I can't get a version to work.
Program directs you to download a new version from a website that doesn't have it.
No pros from my experience.
This software just prompts you to download an updated version and either the website for the company is down, or it is just a pop-up site.
I would recommend that cnet investigate this program as malware/adware.

Taken the words out of my mouth there. That such a program would force the user to get an updated version is unacceptable in any case. And how did it conclude that there's a newer version with the website being defunct, anyway?
I tried another free winmail.dat viewer but it didn't work. This program worked perfect.
The file on download.com isn't up to date. Get it from AkeeSoft.com
It works and it's FREE
It's so nice when a public spirited chap writes just the right little utility to solve one of those nasty problems that Microsoft causes all the time.
It's galling to have to pay to repair the damage that MS creates all the time, and to find freeware that totally works for this problem is just great.
Even just trying to explain the problem to users of OutHouse is a pain. If they're so clueless that they'r prepared to use software that's the prime target for all malware, you canbe sure they're never going to be able to attach files the "right" way.
Just a _very_ minor aesthetic comment. If you're using this app over MTSC (Remote Desktop Connection), which typically has a limited colour map, the (otherwise nice) colour scheme is a little less than perfect. Of course, if this is the biggest problem with a piece of free software that actually works, you know you're onto a winner.
I like the simplicity and ease of use. Most important though that it allowed me to do what I downloaded it for. I was able to view a win.dat file effortlessly!!
