Opening msg file in Oultook 2003 vs Outlook 227

A client saved some msg files in Outlook 03 and they opened in a message window when viewed. They upgraded to Outlook 07 and upon opening the msg files from Explorer, they open as attachments to a new message.

Did they change the functionality of opening MSG files in Office 2007? Or is there a setting somewhere that will open MSG files to view instead of as an attachment in a new email?

Hi, lsps.

No, Microsoft did not change the functionality.  When I open an item saved to a .msg file it opens just as if I opened the message in Outlook.  Nor am I aware of any settings in Outlook that control this behavior.  Do they see the same behavior if they save a message from Outlook 2007 and open it from Explorer?
