File Preview .msg extension

Brian H 1 month ago updated by Vlad R 1 day ago 3

I have just updated my FileRun. 


I used to drag email messages from Outlook into a "correspondence" folder that had no issues clicking on an email message to see the content. 


After the update, the preview shows up as programing language. Any ideas?

We blocked browser content sniffing, which is a browser "feature" where opening a random file in a browser would have the browser try to detect the type of file to present in an appropriate way. The problem with this is allows for a pretty nasty security vulnerability.

I am guessing that the browser might have opened this type of files, as HTML, and that is why you were seeing something. I am guessing it wasn't a clean textual preview.

We will include a proper MSG/EML preview plugin with the next release.

Under review

Maybe you have a custom made FileRun plugin? FileRun does not ship with an e-mail file viewer.

no custom plugin, I had it set to open in a new window. Now that seems to be broken.
