E-FTP: Certain File Types (such as .MSG) Open As Junk Characters in Internet Explorer (IE) (Doc ID 2152045.1)

Last updated on JUNE 21, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In 8.54.22 and higher, when viewing file types that are not delivered with a MIME type definition on the web server (such as .MSG file attachments), junk characters are displayed in Internet Explorer (IE).  In earlier 8.54 releases, the same .MSG files opened directly in Outlook when viewed from IE, even though the MIME type definition was not delivered for .MSG files.
