The version is 2.0.2
Apparently, in case of a rich text format email or annex, I don't know  
which, microsoft changes the annext in winmail.dat. In this case evolution  
should use 'tnef' to open the annex. But it doesn't, so it uses Ktnef. But  
when you click on this option it doesn't work. If you save the annex on  
the desktop it works.

So I ask myself where can I change the options for evolution, because  
there must be a difference. I  never installed tnef or ktnef. So it must  
be a very known problem.
