I’m having a hard time understand the difference between Consistent Mime Handling and Mime Sniffing Safety feature. The original is that I have a web app which users can login and retrieve reports in an Excel format but in the background it actual is an html file. The users are getting an
Error every time they run a report “The file you are trying to open, '[filename]', is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?" (Yes | No | Help)”
Users are running Windows 7 Sp1 and Office 2010. Which of these two policies will force the file to be save and open in an xls format.
Thank you in advance
