I think the MSDN (msdn.microsoft.com) did & maybe still does (probably not on the main disk, probably under old archives) have stuff about TNEF (their proprietary "Transport Neutral Encoding Format" AKA "we didn't understand the Internet, MIME, base64 etc. so we re-invented our own").
But, I thought "winmail.dat" went out with the old evil Microsoft Mail client. I thought Outlook has never written "winmail.dat"'s, even from its first release? (I think early Outlook's would append a TNEF segment, but not as "winmail.dat" -- instead they would add a separate MIME part attachment, with content-type something like x-ms-tnef?)
