Newer versions of Microsoft Outlook send attachments in a file called "winmail.dat". This is a binary file and unusable with any mail program except M$ Outlook.

than 4 MB) are accepted. If you need to decode a larger file, please download

Also, some older browsers are unable to upload files. If you use such a browser, you will get error messages after you tried to upload. In this case, use a non-broken browser or TNEF.
