Informations about ms tnef 

Pronounced tee-neff, and short for Transport Neutral Encapsulation Format, a proprietary format used by the Microsoft Exchange and Outlook e-mail clients when sending messages formatted as Rich Text Format (RTF). When Microsoft Exchange thinks that it is sending a message to another Microsoft e-mail client, it extracts all the formatting information and encodes it in a special TNEF block. It then sends the message in two parts - the text message with the formatting removed and the formatting instructions in the TNEF block. On the receiving side, a Microsoft e-mail client processes the TNEF block and re-formats the message. Unfortunately, Microsoft Outlook use it to store fileattachments too and not only to handle special Outlook things like sending appointments back and forth. Read Microsofts "technical support" paper and Wikipedia article for additional informations.
