Microsoft Exchange is what is causing the files. Whenever I receive mail
from anyone or this list that was created with Exchange the result is the
WINMAIL.DAT file. If I use Exchange to retrieve and read the mail I don't
get them. Sending and receiving mail via Exchange enables you to use all the
fonts you have available in windows. Of course the recipient has to have the
ability to receive the format. If not it's somehow treated as an attachment
to the message and saved as the .DAT file by your mailer, in my case Eudora.
