I've just been tearing my hair out trying to decode a winmail.dat file with Wireshark. 'file' confirms that the file is in TNEF format. Wireshark does understand TNEF: its in the supported protocols list and enabled. My problem is in getting wireshark or tshark to read the file. The closest I've got was by r... 27 Nov 2009 21:08
I don't actually have any need for Tor as yet, but the way our governemnt is going I thought it time to try out these services 'just in case'.
