I have had to disable TNEF checking completely since it was causing contact
lists being emails around to break for Outlook 2007 clients with either the
or the external expander.

It would be nice to be able to use it to replace the winmail.dat but I
can't.  We have
tens of thousands of clients of all types so there's no way to stop using
any time in the near future.
