It doesn't work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately it does not work for me with Thunderbird 3.0. When I try to save a .txt file sent by Outlook, the "Open" dialog does not pick up that it is a .txt file, so won't associate it with Notepad. Also, it won't save the file until it has been associated, so the result is that my simple little .txt file cannot be either opened or saved. I can't give a positive rating for something that does not work.

Would you mind updating your addon to the TB 3.0 version. I do have a compatibility error while installing it..
My TB can't live without your great add-on ;)

Thank you SO MUCH for this Add-on. Unfortunately, the uninitiated still use Outlook, and I'm tired of getting emails from them in .dat format I can't decipher. This plug-in is a GODSEND!

Excellent plugin. I have used with Thunderbird to version 2.0.0.23. Now install the TB 3.0, but the LookOut not functioning, the message says "Not compatible with this version". There will be an update soon?

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.
