I use Mac for my works, I received a lot of winmail.dat files from the senders who are using Microsoft Outlook, but I don’t know how to extract and save it, the contents is very important for me. I need them to do my works. This question has been bothering me for a long time, I am eager to solve. Does anyone know what method can I fix?

I suspect you may have to delete outlook and reinstall.

I have tried to reinstall, but it's useless. But it does not matter, I have found a good way to deal with it. Spam! It's a miracle food.

I'm sorry to hear that you have spent such a long time completely unable to work, since these files are so important to your job.

Searching the Mac App Store is of course a rather obscure solution, second only to a search engine like Altavista, Yahoo, or Google.

The last time this was relevant — about a decade ago — I used the free TNEF's Enough app.
https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/tnef...86621173?mt=12

Of course, that doesn't have $19.99 in-app purchase options, so it's probably not as good.

Incidentally, the only Review of the app you discovered that's on the German App Store -- where the developer obviously didn't pay for astroturfing -- mentions that only the download is free. Actually USING the app IMMEDIATELY forces you to upgrade via in-app purchase.

Apple doesn't like fraud.

I think the best search engine is still Ask Jeeves. Other than that, Spheric is on point!
