TNEF is a program for unpacking Microsoft MIME attachments of type "application/ms-tnef".

It is used to extract the contents of winmail.dat files that are attached to e-mail by Outlook mail clients.

For example, save the attachment as winmail.dat, then:

mkdir tmp tnef -C tmp winmail.dat

The attachments inside winmail.dat should be in the tmp folder.
