Confused about "Could not parse Outlook Rich Text attachment"

Hi All,

Looking through the mail list archives and the actual message, it has to do 
with M$ outlook using Rich text.  Think trying to get users to use plain 
text and html might be a problem.

I also see mention of winmail.dat .  If I send a test message with rich text 
enabled , I don't see this attached to the mail.  I checked this using "vi" 
on a users mail box.

Deliver Unparsable TNEF = no

Is it safe to change this to yes
