I tried the web interface the office uses. It successfully sees the
several parts of the e-mail, but when I try to open them, all I see is
garbage. This was alluded to on one of the web sites from my Googling.
Apparently, only Outlook can read winmail.dat.

I suspect that they'll want me to use some of the other features of
Outlook. Sigh.
