WebReady Document Viewing

Public and Private Computer File Access

Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 includes a feature named WebReady Document Viewing. WebReady Document Viewing lets users view common file types in the Outlook Web App Web browser without having the applications associated with those file types installed on the computer they're using. Users can view the following kinds of files using WebReady Document Viewing:

  • .doc
  • .docx
  • .pdf
  • .ppt
  • .pptx
  • .xls
  • .xlsx

Additionally, the following MIME types are supported:

  • application/pdf
  • application/vnd.ms-excel
  • application/vnd.ms-powerpoint
  • application/word
  • application/x-mspowerpoint
  • application/x-msexcel

For more information about how to manage WebReady Document Viewing for users, see Configure WebReady Document Viewing.

You can configure how users interact with files by using the Allow, Block, or Force Save options for direct file access in the Exchange Management Console. This means that you can specify the types of files that users can access. More important, you can directly specify which types of files are prohibited. For more information about how to manage public and private computer file access, see Configure Public and Private Computer File Access.
