    Hello guys,

    got my Tab 10.5 WIFI 2 days ago and are satisfied so far very much.

    BUT:

    Sending an .xlsx file from my laptop turns out to be receipted by the original mail program as an attached WINMAIL.dat file.

    Receiving the original mail either back on my laptop or on my googlemail account on the tablet turns out to work just fine.
    Which means sending and receiving works. Exept receiving it on the original mail program.

    Any ideas?

    Thx & enjoy

    Andrew

    welcome to AF!!!!!!!

    i always use gmail to read my emails.....never like native mail apps on most devices. communication between the app and server seems to always get mixed up regardless of device. i found that if you have a yahoo account to use the yahoo mail app for example.

    Yeah, thx.

    Guess that's it.
    Glad there are easy ways to deal with it. Like you say Gmail is one convenient way.

    Got it made :)
