Cannot open msg file in read only mode


We migrated to SharePoint 2010 and we are facing below issue. Can somebody help.

I am unable to open file types like 'msg' in read-only mode from the document libraries that are created after upgrading from SharePoint Server 2007 to SharePoint 2010. When we choose to open the files in read-only mode, we receive a prompt to save the file locally or cancel it. We can open other file.

We had similar issue and it was resolved by following below steps. This occurs due to BrowserFileHandling property not properly set.

Run the below command in SharePoint Powershell

#Get Web
$web = Get-SPWeb "http://yourspweburl"

#Get Document Library
$docLib = $web.lists["Your Document Library Title"]

#View all properties/methods of the Document Library and you'll see that BrowserFileHandling is a property $docLib | Get-Member

#See the current BrowserFileHandling setting for the Document Library $docLib.BrowserFileHandling

#If you need to change it from Strict to Permissive $docLib.BrowserFileHandling = "Permissive"
