Someone has sent me an attachment in an e-mail in winmail.dat form and I can't open it. I tried Zamzar as well. Any ideas?

Thanks to both tullie and Crossbow7 for help. Right clicking only gave Open option not open with but the link to WM Decode sorted it and the file unzipped without problem. Thank you both very much.
