I am in HTML mode and currently using an Outlook 2003 in Win7 but every time I’m trying to send an excel for a user of a MAC they’ll always get an winmail1dat.file which is if you will email in a rich text format but I am not using that. In every plain text that I’ve send they’ll get an .xls and to my friend using Mac he gets the same .xls file too. What could you say about this? Is this fine? Or not?
And can you give me some suggestions on how could I send the xls.file in plain in just for one time user?

Generally, winmail.dat file shows as different mail programs handle message formats in different ways.
Messages sent from Microsoft Outlook mail program may appear with a winmail.dat attachment if your own mail program is not configured to handle mail in the Microsoft Outlook Rich Text Format.
There are some ways to troubleshoot your problem with the winmail.dat file. You can try asking the message sender to change Outlook’s settings so that the mail can be sent in the plain-text format, and then resend the original message.
You can visit the Microsoft Website on how you can do my suggestion at website.
