Outlook Web Access – file attachment behavior change

Addressing a vulnerability that was identified by Microsoft, there has been a change in file attachment behavior in Outlook Web Access, also known as xmail. File attachments will no longer give you the option to “open as web page”; you will only have the option of downloading an attachment to your computer before you can open it.

Once a patch has been developed by Microsoft and deployed by IS&T teams, the affected functionality will be restored and this post will be updated.
