    I received some email with the notorious winmail.dat attachment. It came
    via my Netscape mail which of course can't read it.
    I do have Office 2000 with Outlook, but can't figure out how to open
    this attachment.

    Do I have to actually import it into Outlook or is there something I am
    missing?

    Thanks....
