To our developers: Anyone who could provide a simple app to decode TNEF – so those "winmail.dat" attachments created by pesky stupid MS Outlook/Exchange could be opened from within e.g. K9 Mail, decode to the PDF (or whatever the attachment really should be), and then offer to open with the appropriate app or save to "disk"?

So far I've only found a single app on Play (low rated and full of trackers). I'd prefer one on @fdroidorg and without trackers. Anyone, please?

Else please boost πŸ˜‰

@FabioWidmer I'm not an Android dev or I could check – but I'm excited the idea is picked up. Looking forward to it, thanks a lot!

I managed to include the Apache POI library with compiling the app successfully. Now it should be possible to extract the attachments in winmail.dat files and display them. Will continue tomorrow.

@FabioWidmer Great! Please let me know when I can help testing. And when done, if I can help getting it into F-Droid πŸ˜ƒ

@FabioWidmer @fdroidorg Cool! Actually that's what I use on Android. Hoping it gets merged soon!

(I have another bug report open there for years, so I really hope this PR will be processed much faster)
