I have a web application that will allow me to attach files (XLS, DOC, PPT, JPG, etc.) and view them later when clicked from the browser.  The browser will automatically open the proper application based upon the file MIME type.  Here are some sample for other MS types:
application/vnd.ms-excel
application/msword
application/vnd.ms-powerpoint
image/jpeg
(see http://www.w3schools.com/media/media_mimeref.asp)

Does anyone know how I could do this for an Outlook MSG type?  I've tried
application/vnd.ms-outlook
application/vnd.outlook
application/outlook

and they do not seem to work. Any suugestions
