When I have my addin turned on and I send an email with an attachment to a yahoo or aol account, the attachment shows up as winmail.dat. But, not when I have the addin turned off. Anyone know why this happens? I'm assuming it is some kind of security thing. Is there a way to prevent that using the Security Manager Active X or some other way?

Hi Bob,

I don't think that the use of our Outlook Security Manager may have such results. To make sure of this, try to temporary remove the OSM related code and retest your project.

P.S. Note that we take up your forum requests in the order we receive them.
Besides, it may take us some time to investigate your issue. Please be sure we will let you know as soon as the best possible solution is found.
