My associate and I both just got the new IPAD, we both received the same email with an attachment winmail.dat file. I can not open it, he can? Can you please advise. Thank you!

I wouldn't worry about it to be honest that is only a file sent from Microsoft outlook users and it's something to do with the plain text and rich text formats it's so the recipient sees it the same way they do.

I found a link : http://www.pchell.com/support/winmaildat.shtml

This describes a winmail.dat file is and then you can decide if you need to open it. Also doing a quick google search I found at the top of the search engine a website where you can upload the .dat file and see it but if you have the email already there to see but it just has that attachment also I wouldnt bother you, but that's upto you.
Hope this helps
