Fact is, it *is* text. The problem is that outlook doesn't qualify as an 
email reader.
Postel's law
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Postel#Postel.27s_Law
says "be conservative in what you send, be liberal in what you receive", 
the exact opposite of what outlook does: it sends crap (e.g. 
winmail.dat) but it cannot render a correctly formed *text* mail message.
Do the world a favour and use a real email program, or stop complaining 
about well formed messages.
