Open .eml files in Zimbra Desktop

Postby byr » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:15 am


I searched a lot how I could open .eml files in ZD, but what I found was only descriptions how to import eml files.
However I do not want to import the eml file, I just want to open it for viewing. I created a zimlet, which adds a menu item in the context menu to save the e-mail message to eml format. It works flawlessly, however later (may be years later) the users would like to view the message again by opening the eml file (eg. double-clicking it, and eml extension is associated with ZD). Currently doing this ZD opens up, but the eml is not loaded and shown to the user.

Is there any possibility that ZD supports this? It would be a great feature. I can also accept if a zimlet could do it, but then please provide a small hint where should I look in the API.

Thanks in advance, kind regards,
