Description : improved decoder for application/ms-tnef attachments
Yerase's TNEF Stream Reader allows you to decode application/ms-tnef
e-mail attachments, which are usually entitled "winmail.dat" and are
generally a file container format that is only readable by Microsoft
Outlook. Some TNEF streams also include RTF-formatted data.
ytnef parses these streams into normal MIME attachments and RTF
attachments that you can read from non-Outlook mail readers.
A convenience script is provided to allow users to transparently
filter messages containing TNEF attachments into messages with
proper attachments, via procmail.
Debs are ready, and I'll be contacting Nick Phillips, maintainer of a
similar (but IME inferior) package, about possible collaboration.
