Remove Hidden Data and Personal Information from Office
Documents - If you plan to share an electronic copy of a
Microsoft Office document, it is a good idea to take the extra step
of reviewing the document for hidden data or personal information
that might be stored in the document itself or in the document
properties (metadata (metadata: Data that describes other data. For
example, the words in a document are data; the word count is an
example of metadata.)). Because this hidden information can reveal
details about your organization or about the document itself that
you might not want to share publicly, you might want to remove this
hidden information before you share the document with other people.
This article explains how the Document Inspector feature
in Microsoft Office Word 2007, Microsoft Office Excel
2007, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 can help
you find and remove hidden data and personal information in your Office documents.

WMDecode - Do recipients
of your emails complain about a mysterious attachment called winmail.dat, which they cannot open? Do files you attach
disappear in that winmail.dat moloch? Does winmail.dat show up for some but not all recipients of
your messages? When someone receives a message from a user with Microsoft Outlook who has sent the message in Microsoft Outlook RTF format, they will receive the normal
message text along with an attached file named
'winmail.dat'. The winmail.dat file contains a
formatted version of the message (which this program ignores) and
any attached files. WMDecode is the program needed to
unravel this. WMDecode will scan the selected winmail.dat file for attachments and save them
individually. WMDecode is easy to use. To install, copy
the file WMDecode.exe to your desktop. To use, just
drag/drop a winmail.dat file onto it to retrieve the
attached files. If you want to stop sending out winmail.dat attachments to recipients (i.e., anyone who is
not using Microsoft Outlook) then 1) Search for the
desired contact in your Outlook Contacts. 2) Double-click
the contact's email address or alternatively, click on the desired
email address with the right mouse button and select Outlook
Properties from the menu. 3) Make sure either "Let
Outlook decide the best sending format" or "Send Plain Text only"
is selected under Internet format:. 4) Click OK. For further
info, see Winmail.dat
