May 28, 2024 Releases Letter Opener 2.2 Releases Letter Opener 2.2

Posted June 29, 2009 at 8:19am by iClarified has announced the release of Letter Opener 2.2, their winmail.dat converter plug-in for Apple Mail. At its basic, Letter Opener processes Microsoft Outlook winmail.dat files without the requirement for a separate, standalone application. Implemented as a plug-in, Letter Opener lives right inside Apple Mac OS X Mail, allowing users to seamlessly convert winmail.dat files to attachments, iCal files, vCards, and more.

Letter Opener was awarded with 5 Mice by Macworld Magazine.

Version 2.2 brings support for Microsoft Outlook reports like delivery receipts and read receipts. It also introduces support for encrypted and signed messages with a winmail.dat attachment. This is a recommended upgrade for all users.

Letter Opener 2.2 Features:
* Treat attachments within a winmail.dat file like other attachments
* Convert Events, Appointments and Tasks for iCal
* Convert Contacts for Address Book
* Nested Message Handling
* Convert Notes for Mail
* Convert Reports for Mail
* Update Checker: Letter Opener checks for the latest available update at startup
* Fully supports Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.3 (Panther)

Microsoft Outlook doesn't send any plain text information for contacts, so usually the only way to transfer a contact is using a vCard. With Letter Opener, contact data within winmail.dat can be extracted and saved with a single click. Microsoft Outlook sends calendar items as plain text. But it is not very Mac-like to copy and paste this into iCal. Letter Opener converts these items directly so they appear as sent from another Mac user. When receiving winmail.dat files as email attachments from Microsoft Outlook users, nothing is so seamlessly and conveniently integrated into Apple Mail as Letter Opener.

More info about the winmail.dat format:
winmail.dat files are sent form Microsoft Outlook or Exchange Server. Some winmail.dat files only contain information used by Outlook to generate a richly formatted view of the message, such as embedded documents or Outlook-specific features such as meeting requests, versit card information, notes and messages forwarded as attachments. Other winmail.dat files may contain files which have been attached to an e-mail message. See the Wikipedia website for more info.

Pricing and Availability:
Letter Opener 2.2 is priced at 19.99 EUR for a single-user license. It is a 9.99 EUR upgrade for all version 1.x customers.
