Actually, we are using the Winmaildat filter from Niversoft. Also this is occuring after the message is received. We have a rule that captures the messages just before they are written to the mailbox. The captured version does not have a Winmail.dat attached to it. It seems the Outlook modififed the message and wrote it back to the mailbox. All the settings that I have found are set to HTML rather than RTF.

The piece of this that really confuses me that it seems to only be occuring on messages forwarded to him from his secretary. I really don't think this is a CG problem more as it is an Outlook problem, but was just wondering if anyone had ran into this before.

Have you checked the secretary's Outlook settings?
