Is there any plan to support rasterization/viewing of Outlook MSG/EML files?

We are frequently considering such format, but they are really hard to address without external application plugin which is out of the philosophy of the SDK. So basically I can't engage on an implementation but I can tell that we are always trying to do something :)

Hi Loïc,

Can you clarify the external application plug-in concept for me? As I understand, the contents of the MSG file is simply text, HTML, or RTF and embedded files. You already support those formats with the viewer. For any embedded files that are attachments you may also support viewing those formats, such as an embedded DOCX. Is your concern about parsing the MSG wrapper?
