    Default MS Outlook

    Everywhere I read, I see that the iPhone can open and view MS Docs (Excel and Word).
    I email myself an Excel spreadsheet using MS Outlook and all I get is an email with a winmail.dat icon with a question mark in it.
    If I go thru gMail and send the attachment, it comes thru no problem.

    Is there a way to send the MS files thru Outlook and be able to view them?

    What version of Outlook are you using? If you're getting a "winmail.dat", it's Outlook that is "munging" up the email and making the client unable to recognize the attachment.

    Here's a site that explains different ways to fix the "winmail.dat" issue:
