No preview: .msg-files can‘t be read

No preview: .msg-files can‘t be read

Dear community,

I would like to preview .msg-files (MS Outlook) on iOS-devices. When I click on a file, it just shows the file name instead of the content.

I have installed the outlook app and the MS Office app.

I appreciate your help. Thanks.

Dropbox doesn't preview .MSG files. You'll need to export them to an application that is capable of opening them.

Thanks for your reply. I tried to open it in the outlook-app, but it just opened up a new outlook-e-Mail with the desired file as an attachment.
