Very useful!
Works in the background and makes dealing with Outlook mails almost painless.

Thank you! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tested and works like a charm on both WinXP and Mac PPC versions :-) Thank you!

As an improvement, I would like to see a message in Thunderbird whenever a winmail.dat is decoded: "This message contains a winmail.dat attachment which was decoded for you". This way I don't have to spend a few seconds wondering if I see all attachments or if there is several attachments, Including a winmail.dat.

Funktioniert nicht! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Funktioniert nicht und kann mit der aktuellen Mozilla-Version nicht geöffnet werden. Toll! Soll ich jetzt deshalb auf eine alte Mozilla-Version gehen, damit ich Windat lesen kann? Oder wann gibt es ein Update?

It is necessary to convert charactor code. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Hi. This add-on is useful. It is necessary to convert it for character-codes other than ASCII.
It is an example for Japanese Shift_JIS.
----before
file.name = tnef_file_munge_fname( attrs[i].values[0], files );
----after
var UConv = Components.classes['@mozilla.org/intl/scriptableunicodeconverter'].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIScriptableUnicodeConverter);
UConv.charset = "Shift_JIS";
file.name = UConv.ConvertToUnicode(tnef_file_munge_fname( attrs[i].values[0], files ));

Does not work with html based messages Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It does not seem to work for the html based emails, sent from an outlook client. It still shows them as Part 1.1 and Part 1.2 etc.
Are you planning any enhancement to tackle these issues ?

Great for Office 2007 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works very well with attachments sent in Office 2007. Now I can see attachments from colleagues & customers again.

the body-rtf attachment is a good workaround to see the formatted message (in-line would be nice, but probably a bit much to ask).

feature request: Could you add an option to hide the Winmail.dat attachment itself? It is not necessary once I have my attachments displayed.

Can't seem to get it to recognise winmail.dat attach Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Installed the plugin but the winmail.dat stays just that, an unrecognised attachment.
Found WinMail reader that I managed to program to open the attachment when it is double clicked in Thunderbird.
Any other advice?

Advice

If you would like help you should probably be writing to the mailing list. Asside from that please let me know your version number of Thunderbird and LookOut. Open the "Error Console" under the Tools menu and see if there are any messages related to LookOut or Tnef.

Convert rtf in html resolve problem for me Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very usefull add-on! I had problem with outlook 2003 message, so i edit tnef.js in lookout.jar at line 1312 and save all .rtf in .html format. So I can read the attachment, not perfect but good.

case "application/rtf": file.name += ".html"; break;

Bye bye.

automatic import of calendar event not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works, but it doesn't open automatically calendar .ics info when there are more than one contents in winmail.dat, even if the "Open calendaring data directly" option is checked.
I often receive Outlook mails with appointment (.ics) + rtf description: Lookout doesn't prompt to add to calendar the event.
The only (annoying) workaround is to save the .ics file and import it manually.

doesn't work with TB 2.0.0.19 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

LookOut worked well with previous TB versions (German Linux version here), but with the actual TB 2.0.0.19 the winmail.dat files are not splitted any more (no decoding).
I tried the newer experimental LookOut versions, but they didn't work either. May I ask for a fix?

Send Sample Data

Please select an email that is not decoding. Go to File->Save As->File. Please zip the \"eml\" file and send to the LookOut mailing list. Thank you.

Nice! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have tested it on Thunderbird 2.0.0.18/German/Windows and it works except for a few problems:
1) As mentioned earlier hier the settings dialog isn't working (V1.2.3, just a blue title bar with the [X] Button). No messages on the error console.
2) When i select a mail with a winmail.dat sometimes the included files will not be listed in the attachments area even if they did before. If i restart Thunderbird then the included files in a winmail.dat are listed again. I was not able to figure out when and why the addon stop working but a restart always fixed that. Also no error messages on the error console.

I'm missing an option to add the included files in a winmail.dat when printing the mail.

Besides that: 4 out of 5 Stars.

This extension is awesome! I love it! Lots of people use Outlook (many clients do), and was a pain when they send me attachments. I used to have to tell them to upload it somewhere (until I found there is software for this).

But LookOut changes everything. Seriously, you cannot live without this one. LookOut is a lifesaver.
