A colleague is attempting to send me items from Publisher 98 as attachments to an e.mail using Outlook Express, he assures me that the attachments are listed as ?????.pub when he sends them but when they arrive they arrive as winmail.dat.and my computer cannot open them. I use AOL and my attachments from Publisher to him arrive OK. Can anyone explain?

Sounds like he is using Outlook, not Outlook Express. Tell him to send messages to you in Plain Text format. That'll fix it.
