I have a blazor app which consumes an API that sends documents as byte arrays. 

In the header is the file name, so I can determine what sort of file it is. I am currently using the following:





Which works great, for me to get a byte array that can be used with the TelerikPdfViewer.

The issue I have is, that some of the documents are email messages, specifically .msg files.

There isn't a provider for Msgs, so I wondered if anyone had a work around, to be able to show the file in the browser?
I cannot save the file as a .msg, I can only use the byte array.

@Toby - the way I see it, you can select some third-party tool to read (parse) the msg file, or do that manually, based on the specification. Once you have the parsed content, import it to one of our format providers.

Thanks for your reply. The issue I have is, the .msg is a byte array, I do not have it as a file saved on disk, so reading it isn't a possibility without saving, which is what I was hoping to avoid. 

It could be that I have no other option, but to save it, and then parse it. I just wondered if anyone had solved the issue, as the Telerik tools are great, in that they allow me to just use the byte array I receive, without the need to save them.

No answers yet. Maybe you can help?
