Does anyone know how to open .dat attachments to emails? If I send PDF or jpeg attachments to emails to my iPad, they turn into .dat files in the iPad inbox, and I can't open them. Is there an app which will solve this problem?

Dat files are usually data files. You need to figure out why your email client is converting pdf's and jpegs into dat files. What email client are you using and who is your email provider?

✔ Best Answer
Is that, winmail.dat?

This is a stupid Outlook issue.

If you send it to a g-mail account, or a yahoo account, they will transparently convert it for you.

Hotmail, however, will not...yea, the microsoft service, won't auto-convert the worthless .dat file that outlook created...
