The layout of Winmail Reader will be familiar to any Windows user, and there aren't many options, so most people will be able to jump right in without any assistance. The main display window is divided into two panes, with the one on the left listing attachment names and the right pane displaying the item that is highlighted on the left. We liked that you could drag and drop items to the interface, making it a little faster to view them. The five basic options are neatly laid out at the top of the left-hand pane, letting you quickly open or save your items. Winmail Reader also allows you to easily convert files to other formats.
