This works great for me in Thunderbird 24 after a small tweak. Close Thunderbird, then delete (or rename) your mimeTypes.rdf file, then start Thunderbird. I think I had associated application/tnef with something else before, causing the suggested fix below (adding to mimeTypes.rdf) to fail for me.

Not working with TB 24 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I tried the fix suggested by a previous reviewer, and that fix isn't working either. I would very much love to view my attachments, but I still can't. Too bad - it seems like this is such an essential tool.

Fix for TB 17 and previous not working versions Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work on TB 17.0.6 too, but I suppose this bug it's not strictly related with TB version.
After a few testing I saw that the addin doesn't manage the winmail.dat attachment because of a missing entry into mimeTypes.rdf file.

To fix it:
- close all Thunderbird instances
- open your profile folder (on Windows press WIN+R, write %appdata% and press ENTER)
- make a backup copy of mimeTypes.rdf file
- open mimeTypes.rdf with your preferred text editor
- go to the end and paste this content ust before the last line (</RDF:RDF>)

GREAT! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works directly! Maybe as a new feater, a checkbox to disable the other files. I'm getting a .dat file and I'm only interested in the .doc file and not the .html & .vcf :).

Attachments come through fantastic in TB17. Thank goodness!

hope to compatible with Thunderbird Conversations

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't seem to work with TB 17. Clicking on attachments in an email just opens an open with dialog. When choosing Thunderbird as the application, it just opens an email with the ics file as an attachment. Read the instructions for Lookout. It seems like all I'd need to do is double-click the attachment in an email and it will load into the Lightning calendar. But it is not happening like that in my version.

I had a dire need for this add on and it works nicely.

Very useful tool! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a very useful AddOn! I use it since several years.
But it seem to interfere with "Thunderbird Conversations". Could you please contact Jonathan Protzenko the developer of "Thunderbird Conversations" for integration again?
Great Thanks!

Just as "aguenther" said, it doesn't work.
When clicked on "Open" it simply opens the "Opens with" dialog box"

Some time back it use to work though, not anymore (TB 17.0)

Conflicts with Caldev Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This conflicts with Caldev/SoGo(Inverse) functions. I use Davmail Gateway to pull in Calendaring, emails, tasks, etc. Pretty much breaks the Exchange functions. So if you're using any Calendaring feature for Exchange don't add this

Displays content of the winmail.dat, but instead of extracting it, just makes copies of said file with the names of the internal files.

Works great for decoding winmail.dat attachments in Thunderbird 15.

Missing support for SeaMonkey Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Arbeitet im Hintergrund, kein Zusatzaufwand zum Öffnen der Attachments nötig. Perfekt!

This Add-On is great, and worked first time, so much easier than going back to sender telling them you can't read their emails. Very Good work!.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This Add-On is the final element to make Thunderbird a true Outlook replacement. When combined with:
Lightning and Zindus and using IMAP access to a Zimbra server you have a solution that can effectively replace Outlook. This specific Add-On allows Thunderbird to interact with other users using Outlook. Very well done.

Works and too valuable Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Didn't seem all that compelling at first but it worked like charm. All office attachments which I lost were fixed by this. It's awesome to use an add-on which adds so much value..Great Job guys !!!

It didn't worked to me Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I installed it, I can see the attachement, but it does not want to open it, after several error messages. Rebbot, open mail, try to open winmail.dat...and nothing. Something wrong? BTW, I'm working with TB 12.0.1
