Displaying VMBX emails in mbxviewer via web solution
We have a web solution which will take a custom link to a TRIM document, and display it in the client's browser.
This works well for most file types. Office documents etc will open in the native application. We have an issue with displaying VMBX files however.
The MIME type is vmbx application/octet-stream, which instructs the browser to render the email (and any attachments) as text. If we append .vmbx to to the link, they open in mbxviewer, but this isn't an acceptable solution for the volume of links we are dealing with.
Can anyone help me with configuring the MIME type in IIS to instruct the browser to open VMBX emails in mbxviewer instead of rendering them as text?

I'm affraid you'll need to fix this on the client side. On the user's machine, you'll need to bind the MIME type to the viewer by the vmbx extension.
See "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type" in the client registry on how other applications are handled.
