EML & MSG content attachment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've ".eml & .msg" content as an attachment in my SharePoint list. When I clicking on ".msg" attachment, the popup is getting open with the option of "Open, Save, Cancel" where as if I  open ".eml" attachment, the popup is getting open with the option of "Save, Cancel".  Why the "Open" option is not coming when I open ".eml" attachment in SharePoint list? Can you please help me on this?

  • Hi orionkings.

    The problem could be to either the Browser File Handling setting or to the management of MIME types by the specific SharePoint web application for them to be considered trusted.
    If you don't want to set the Browser File Handling to permissive, then I recommend to add the MIME type for the .EML file to the trusted list for the web application using PowerShell: read the thread at https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/39c53db4-d79b-4cd4-b9b5-6afe7e61d1a9/eml-files-in-a-document-library-any-way-to-make-easily-viewable-without-turning-on-passive-file?forum=sharepointgeneral.

    Bye.

  • We have applied above said settings in IIS and ran PowerShell script, but nothing helps us to fix the issue. When I open the "EML" attachment from SharePoint list, the pop up is loading with the option of "Save" & "Cancel". Instead, the popup should load with the option of "Open" as well.

    Note: The above said changes have been done in SharePoint 2013 on-premise site and nothing works as expected. Not sure the same settings and powershell script will work for SharePoint Online Site

  • Hi,

    Please do as following:

    1. Navigate to Central Administration > Manage Web Applications and select the web application, go to General Settings > Browser File Handling and then change it from "Strict" to "Permissive".

    2. Open regedit.exe on your server and then navigate to “HKEY_Classes_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type”. Delete “message/rfc822” under this location.

    3. Navigate to IIS manager > SharePoint Server > MIME Types and double click ".eml". Change “message/rfc822” into “application/octet-stream”.

    4. Do an IISRESET afterwards.

    Here’s the outcome.

    In addition, we cannot modify SharePoint Online opening behavior.

    Here’s your reference.
