Winmail.dat with Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 Mail App


I receive a lot of emails with Winmail.dat in attachment. My mail server is on Exim. I know it doesn't convert TNEF attachments. However why Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 Mail aren’t compatible with TNEF ? Why I can't open attachments sent by Microsoft Outlook in other Microsoft software ?

More than one hundred of my emails are sent by people with Outlook. I cannot ask them to change their settings just for me … and even if I do that… no all of them will do it. This isn’t a good solution. Is there any way to convert these TNEF emails to something else in Exim ? Or any other solution ?

Thank you
