    what do you mean will not download? I'm pretty sure you can download it but you can't open it.

    Those are proprietary files of M$. If you don't have Office 2007, you can't open it. I think you can download from M$ site a reader of those file type.

    Hope this helps....

    Red face I see what you mean, I think



    If there is an attachment in the ext of docx, when you try to "open it" its treated as a zip file. However, if you "download" it, then when windows asks save? or open? if you open it from there its recognized as an office file.

    Or at least i just discovered this problem.

    .docx works for me in 5.0.2 NE. I don't have any .xlsx or .pptx files. "view as html" works too.

    Zimbra trusts the MIME type sent by the client. If the webmail user or RFC822 message responsible for getting the attachment to Zimbra in the first place tagged it with the wrong MIME type, then the wrong MIME type will be reported by ZWC at download time. .docx should be Content-Type: application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document

    So if I understand this correctly: as long as IE7 sees a .dotx file as a .zip file, Zimbra will not correct this and the behaviour stays the same?

    Anyone else have a solution to try? I'm running:
    Release 5.0.16_GA_2921.UBUNTU8_64 UBUNTU8_64 NETWORK edition and using Firefox 3.0.11 on a Windows machine. If I send a docx to another user on our network, the View As Html opens it as a zip file. All users using the same setup. I checked the ZmMimeTypes.js file and all the associated MIME type lines are already included. Thought or ideas on how to get this working?
