Symptoms

Problem description:

After upgrading to apache2.4.12, when user click on a link that is an outlook email attachment (.msg), the user  gets scrambled characters instead of having the messages downloaded. This only happens in IE(10, 11), Chrome and Firefox work just fine.
1.tried to add "application/vnd.ms-outlook msg" to the config files, which didn't make any difference.
2.went back to apache2.2, everything works just fine including IE. made sure it's not the file system that matters in this case. IE and apache 2.4 are the differences.
