How to read a MS-TNEF attachment?

Apr 11 '17 at 11:05

Does anyone know how I can read TNEF encapsulated attachments from chilkat?


MS-TNEF happens when somebody sends an email using RTF format (Rich Text Format).

My advice: Don't send email using RTF. It's a really bad choice. Send HTML email instead.

If these are emails that are pre-existing from long ago, then I understand there's no choice. Unfortunately, Chilkat doesn't have anything to decode the TNEF format. You would have to look for something else to do it. For example, Google "decode TNEF" or something similar to search for solutions. :)
