Dot Dat School Me
Somewhere along the line, maybe 3 months ago, people began attaching .dat files to emails when they send me information. These files are either graphics or text docs.

Can someone tell me what the heck is generating these .dat files? For the graphic ones I have to use Paint (yeah, I know) to open them, which blows. I can't find the right text editor to open the text versions.

FTW, .dat files piss me off.

The end.

i know dat just stands for data file.
notepad is generally the route i go, if that doesnt work i just forget about it.

The dude said he sent me a PDF and it arrived as a DAT. I'm still confused.

it worked fine with Adobe after I learned it's source. There must be some kind of email software ...maybe Microsoft...that's doing this.
