It is added by certain Microsoft mail software automatically. It usually does
nothing but waste space and bandwidth. If the message has any real
attachments, they are encoded inside the winmail.dat amy may be extracted
using the handy program tnef.

Welcome Eric. Here are some general suggestions to help you to get help:

* Add a descriptive subject to your message
* Copy and paste error messages exactly as they appear into your e-mail.

More specifically, we need the output of 'ifconfig', 'route -n', ifconfig
eth0', and the contents of /etc/resolv.conf to diagnose the problem.
