When viewing an email, Outlook sometimes displays an alert "If there are problems with how this message is displayed, click here to view it in a web browser".  Clicking the alert will open the email in Internet Explorer, even if another browser is selected as the default.  

 

Copying the URL from Internet Explorer into the new Edge address bar will display the raw HTML, but will not render the page.

I tested this with the attached MHT file and I am seeing the same issue. I will be sure to bring this to the product team's attention.
