If you send an email with an attachment using rtf formatting in Outlook, the formatting gets delivered as a file called winmail.dat.

The file is ignored by other mail clients and does not affect the material content of the email message itself.

If you do not wish to see the attachments, the solution is to send messages as plain text.
