When viewing an email, Outlook sometimes displays an alert "If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser". Clicking the alert will open the email in Internet Explorer, even if another browser is selected as the default.
Copying the URL from Internet Explorer into the new Edge address bar will display the raw HTML, but will not render the page.

I tested this with the attached MHT file and I am seeing the same issue. I will be sure to bring this to the product team's attention.

@v-gapart Has there been any updates? I am working on a project at work using a google form to collect orders from our members. The order is confirmed in an email automatically sent out to the member. My issue arises here, the email from google is sent in MHTML format displaying their order, however the quantities they order look skewed. It is viewable by clicking the "view in web browser") and then everything looks fine. However I was curious if there is a way I can have it viewable within the email it's self every time. If there were some instructions you can provide me to enable my outlook to view them properly within the outlook client.
I could understand if this is something I would need to do on the google side of the project, as its an email being sent from them. However I don't believe that is an option at the moment..

Is it possible to get the page sent as a standard html link rather than an MHTML file as that would undoubtedly directly open in the browser rather than asking if it should open in a browser? Otherwise, you may want to contact the Microsoft Office team for Outlook to determine what settings would make the file automatically open in the browser rather than asking. You can contact them at Support.office.com

But this feels more like an workarround, or what do you mean?

I, too, am very annoyed at Outlook's refusal to load an MHTML link. Curiously, Microsoft's own "Mail" program included in Windows 10 handles MHTML links flawlessly. It doesn't even offer the "View in Browser" option but simply displays the link in Chrome, my default browser. Unfortunately, I'm an Outlook fan and do not have the motivation or time to figure out how to set up the kind of calendar function in "Mail" that I use multiple times each day in Outlook.

@P_____20Well, something has changed. Since half a year or so it opens in Edge in "Internet Explorer mode" without asking. Other browsers don't support .mht AFAIK.
But of course this is a typical Microsoft pins and needles - stopgap solution. The real problem is the bad HTML email rendering in Outlook. A newsletter that looks good in in any email client can become a mess in Outlook.

@DoveFromAbovethanks for the update info. It must be my enterprise version of Edge that is not handling MHT correct (still looks like source code). I agree that Outlook needs to be updated to handle modern HTML emails.

@P_____20 You may need to turn on the IE mode in Edge before it will work correctly. Search for Internet Explore in Edge settings, there are a few different settings you'll need to make.
