Mail-in and Exchange mail server - winmail.dat filtering?

posts: 12

Something I've been surprised to see is that nobody has ever posted here regarding winmail.dat attachments from Outlook/Exchange screwing up mail-in parsing.

I get this error:
Notice: Undefined property: parts in /var/www/html/tiki/tiki-mailin-code.php on line 77

When I turn off HTML email and send text only, the problem goes away. This has taken me a while to resolve, since at first I just assumed mail-in was broken all together on windows, so I moved to Linux and found the same problem existed, so then I started to look at the actual email headers and attachments and found the attachment copied below.

Does anyone know if it's easy to somehow filter these webmail.dat attachements? I have a feeling it's going to be very hard to convince my IT guy to turn these off in Exchange, for fear it will muck with Outlook functionality (it won't) and I know I can't expect users to turn of HTML email.

Any clues appreciated.
