We file various Office documents into various folders in Sharepoint Online.
We also file emails in .msg format into client folders.
All other documents Word, Excel etc open with a click on teh file name.
However .msg file formats do not and have to be downloaded to the local PC to be opened in Outlook.
Is it possibole for .msg files to be opened in the same was as for example .docx?
MSG is a file format which is not supported by Office Web Apps and need to be downloaded and open using a client supporting MSG file format (such as Outlook)
Office Web Apps is only managing Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote)

"opening MSG files directly from SharePoint Online is not supported" and Office 365 is an *improvement* over BPOS?
Can't open pdf files
Can't open msg files
RSS feeds disappeared
Checked out documents web part no longer works
We have been transitioned for 3 days. I am not impressed.

This problem is ridiculous. It is the sort of thing it would never occur to someone to verify if it worked or not before using, it is too basic of an oversight.
Apprently it's not a "problem" Bill. It's a "feature". This was done on purpose! To protect us from rogue code that could be embedded in our own files. By militant, comunist, fanatical terrorsists, hell bent on adding viruses to my PDFs and MSGs, one assumes.
Hey Bill! I discovered that you can open pdf and msg files if you use Firefox. Although... Firefox won't let you open in Windows Explorer or upload multiple files.
I guess we'll have to run two browsers simultaneously?
