Good afternoon,

I'm still getting the same unparsable messages.  I changed
the following in the config file as suggested:

# Some versions of Microsoft Outlook generate unparsable Rich Text
# format attachments. Do we want to deliver these bad attachments anyway?
# Setting this to yes introduces the slight risk of a virus getting through,
# but if you have a lot of troubled Outlook users you might need to do this.
# We are working on a replacement for the TNEF decoder.
Deliver Unparsable TNEF = yes

Hope this is a temporary remedy and that you find a replacement
to TNEF.

Any comments more than welcome.
