If a message that has an embedded MAPI attachment is forwarded or sent directly to a Microsoft Mail recipient by means of the Microsoft Mail Connector, the attachment will not be visible to the MS Mail user. The user may see text that resembles the following:
[[ MAPI 1.0 embedded message : 4663 In winmail.dat ]]or possibly just the <Attachmentname.extension>:
It is possible to convert the embedded message to text format so it will be visible by a Microsoft Mail client. Note that this will not occur with any Microsoft Exchange client accessing an Microsoft Mail postoffice, and the following registry value will not be required.
