    Hello there,

    I know that question has been here for many years, but only related to email. I know that to receive an email on Mac i need to set the Outlook format to Plain Text (which I did). What I don't know though is in what format I should send a Contact card from Outlook so it's safely received in Entourage.

    Everytime I try to send it now, I receive it as winmail.dat. :/

    Thanks heaps for any help.

    You know this how?

    Never had a problem receiving contact and calendar data in Entourage from Windows users of Outlook.

    Try TNEF's Enough or OMiC.

    I know that because we had problems receiving emails when they were sent in Rich Format (winmail.dat). After changing to Plain Text we could open it easy. :)

    I thought it might be related to version of Entourage, which is currently 2004 due to BB problem with 2008. I've sent three different types of Business card from Outlook to Entourage user just now and will see if she can open either of them. To get more details about the problem.

    Thanks for comming back to me so quickly. I will the OMiC as TNEF's Enough didn't work.
