If some messages arrive from the Internet looking like scrambled eggs, then you need to save each one as a file, then decode it. This is much less of a problem with current versions of Microsoft Outlook than it was with older versions of Microsoft Outlook and Exchange Messaging.
There are two types of files that may need decoded: uuencoded messages, that for one reason or another did not get decoded by Outlook and winmail.dat files that result from using RTF message format.
The TNEF/winmail.dat decoder tools can be used by non-Outlook users to "crack open" winmail.dat files to recover attachments.
