Summary

I've been a long time user of Letter Opener, going back to the OMiC days. Until recently, I'd not upgraded to the new version when I updated my OS to Mavericks. I thought I'd wait and see if I missed it. Lo and behold I was sorting email and came across a winmail.dat file attachment! Installing the trial, it was immediately resolved!

I came to the product as a switcher from the Windows environment in 2008. I appreciate the long term development of this product, which results in fast updates when they're required by new version of Mail.app. (Wish Apple would just build it into Mail.app! But it keeps the developers of Letter Opener, Creative in Austria, in business!)

At one time there was a lifetime upgrade option for this product, but I don't see it as an option, though, if you have a previous license you qualify for a reduced upgrade price (1/2 off). I hope they bring that option back. Otherwise, this product can seem costly, which I know frustrates a lot of people. All I can say, is I recommend the complainers develop a freeware tool if that's how they feel. Speaking of which, there ARE alternatives, but nothing that I've come across that integrates so seamlessly.

The reality is if you don't want to pay, you don't have to. You can utilize one of the manual alternatives. Just search "winmail.dat viewer mac" and you'll come up with a handful of tools. But if you want a product that is consistently updated, integrated into Mail.app, and just works, then you'll be well served by Letter Opener.

Also, kudos to Creative in Austria for taking up development of DockStar, a great tool that adds up to 5 new customizable mail indicators to the dock icon. I'd been a previous user and was sorry to see Ecamm drop the product. Happy to see it back and look forward to it moving out of BETA.
