MS Outlook tends to hide attached files into winmail.dat files, which is an unimpressive container. Nobody knows why they do it.

  1. A lack of discourtesy send this page
  2. If I am asked for a reason.
  3. I think and I'm sure there will be much simpler questions made ​​by beginners.
  4. I'm not Outlook, but compressed databases on DAT

@alejonext - Most of us here in this forum are not English native speaker. This makes it sometime very difficult to understand questions and comments to provide help. May I kindly ask you to consider this fact?

@alejonext, you said it's BINARY file AND CSV file. So what it actually is? Is it a CSV file (text file, openable with notepad, in this case rename it to .csv and open with LibreOffice) or is it compressed DAT database (in this case it could be pretty much anything, you would have to upload an example file to get any useful advice)?
