Winmail.dat when sending e-mail from OL2016
This appears to be a fairly widespread and extremely annoying issue.
The issue only seems to appear when using the combination of the Outlook 2016 client on Windows 10 connected to Office 365 back-end servers.
The problem did not exist before my outlook.com profile was migrated to o365. So, this tells me a bug was introduced (or perhaps re-introduced) into the Office 365 environment.
Does anyone else have this issue?
There is a thread going on over on TechNet on this issue and it is getting no attention from Microsoft.

It appears that, rather brilliantly (not), even if RTF is turned off in options, Outlook will remember historical settings for recipients, and use these to override the option setting. If you care about your auto-complete lists, just remove the troublesome entries (when they pop up as you enter recipients names, hit the delete key). I preferred to bin the lot - they will soon fill up again.
PS As this problem has been around a long while (I first encountered it in 1998), it has many flavours, and my fix may not work for you.
