Usage

When LookOut is working, you will see the names of the TNEF encapsulated file attachments next to the winmail.dat file. The user interaction is transparent i.e. There are no special dialogs or menu items, etc.
Known issues

* this only does something (visible) for file attachment bearing winmail.dat's
* there is a permission problem on OSX where TB cannot bring up the save-as or open-with dialogs
* the RTF body replacement decoder is disabled at the moment for odd behavior
* it is possible that if there is high server lag that you will have to click-off and click-on the message for it to work.
