Yes, about 30% use Outlook/mapi , (various versions from 2000 to latest) but none are set to use rich text.

FWIW,  I was fighting the winmail.dat problem years ago when I was administering Exchange servers.  The problem then, and maybe now, was
not HTML messages sent from Outlook, but rather Rich Text messages.
Just about everyone not using Outlook couldn't read the rich text
messages sent by our users.    The solution was to set Outlook to
compose messages as HTML or Plain Text.

We use the Niversoft filter these days and my iPhone users (some on imap, others on Airsync)  haven't reported any problems.

Far be it for me to come to Microsoft's defense, but does this
behavior also occur under Exchange? Or with Outlook as an IMAP rather
than MAPI client? It could be due to the Communigate MAPI connector
rather than Outlook per se.
