Hi there,

 

At the moment if someone posts on a channel via email, if it is long enough, the content is cut part off way through. The only option is to "View original email" which downloads the .eml which Apple Mail tries to open. I don't have Apple Mail configured so I have to close apple mail and open the file in a text editor.

 

It would be so helpful to expand message in the channel to see the entire contents of the email.

 

Thanks!

@David I have tested this on both MAC and Windows and we have the option to:


See more

 

This is able to expand all the message and I have not yet found a cut over. How long is the email you are trying to preview? Pages long? and which version of teams do you have?


"You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.1.00.8752. It was last updated on 12/04/2018."
macOS Sierra 10.12.6

The email is apparently quite long because I see this message:
"The email message is too large to display here. Click "View original email" below to see it."

The .eml file is 147KB. There seems to be a few base64 encoded .png files embedded in the email.

As a user I care most about the text content and would be happy to have the images attached to the message separately.

Thanks for the quick response!

I see it now. It seems this depends also on the size of the email.

The message is:

The email message is too large to display here. Click on "View original email" below to see it.

I think though this kills the actual functionality for Teams. Because  MS Teams have to have a cut over. If the document is big enough they can share it as a document or a wiki in the team.  I think the use of it is for small emails but if you want to share something bigger you can use other tools with this solution.

 



Ok I think we can work around it. Thanks for your help!
