I often get the message - Adobe Reader could not open

Customer Question

I often get the message - Adobe Reader could not open 'winmail.dat.pdf' because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
It is not always winmail.dat files. It can be anything. What can I do about this?
