Re: [Evolution] attachment.dat

Thanks, but I can open the attachment.dat file in gedit and it's plain
html. So that tool wasn't able to extract anything.
I can also, and most significantly, read the message when I reply but
not in the preview. So how is it that the reply can extract the plain
text from the HTML message, but the reading pane cannot?
For some reason it appears at though the message body is being turned
into the attachment by Evolution. 
I just received another message in Content-Type: text/html;
charset="iso-8859-1" that also displays as "attachment.dat" which I can
also read in a reply. When I view the message source though it is
readable HTML, unlike the UTF-8 message which, as I mentioned, is
getting "binaried".

The subject is utf-8 encoded also and is interpreted properly, but the
body is interpreted as "attachment.dat", and when I view the source
the body appears as gibberish (presumable binary). If I hit reply I
can read the message. 
I've googled with no success. It doesn't appear to be related to tnef,
as I have that plugin installed. My thinking now is that spamassasin
or bogofilter, so I've temporary disabled those plugins but I haven't
received a message yet to verify.
Anyone experience this or have any ideas?

Try this for converting the *.dat file to something readable:
