ConvertWinmailDat - Extract Attachments from winmail.dat


Sometimes Outlook attaches a winmail.dat file that contains the original attachment(s). That file is encoded in a proprietary format and with an other mail client than Outlook, you won't be able to get the original attachment(s).

This OTRS plugin is implemented as a PostMaster filter that checks if an incoming mail has a file named winmail.dat attached. If such an attachment is found, the original attachments are extracted and added to the article. However the winmail.dat attachment is still attached to the article.

There is nothing to do after installation.


You can install this package with the built-in OTRS package manager (in the Admin area) or on command line:

OTRS 2.4.x:

  perl bin/opm.pl -a install -p ConvertWinmailDat.opm

OTRS >= 3.0.x

  perl bin/otrs.PackageManager.pl -a install -p ConvertWinmailDat.opm

OTRS >= 5.0.x

  perl bin/otrs.Console.pl Admin::Package::Install --location ConvertWinmailDat.opm


The code repository and a bugtracker is availabel at https://github.com/reneeb/otrs-ConvertWinmailDat

Will you update the package for 3.2x?

anonymous on 17 Oct 2013 about version 0.0.2

This plugin works fine with pulling .doc, .pdf, and etc... but doesnt not work for pictures. When you try to open a picture you get an error message.

Könnten Sie ein Update für die Version 3.2 bereitstellen?

Thanks, I got the newer version from github, but that has to get build. Copy all files from the sourcecode folder doc and kernel in your otrs. copy the source code also to /tmp/otrsbuild/ then run under /opt/otrs/ ./bin/otrs.PackageManager.pl -a build -p /tmpotrsbuild/ConvertWinmailDat.sopm

Funktioniert super und zuverlässig unter OTRS 4.X . Hoffentlich kommt bald auch eine Version für 5.X heraus
