I have a question regarding Preview of files. In Office 365 there are a lot of options to preview files. But I am looking into SharePoint server.

 

And especially into eml and msg files can you preview them in SharePoint On Premises? 

And is it already possible in the 2013 version or do you need to upgrade? 

If a upgrade will be made it will be 2019. 

 

Is it also important to have Enterprise or Standard if it works?

 

Thanks in advance.

Trevor is correct. OOTB this is not possible. You will need to deploy 3rd party apps (e.g. AppSource Email Manager) to provide this functionality. These apps not only provide preview capabilities they also provide functionality to extract email metadata like subject, from, conversion id, .. and capture the values into SharePoint columns. The latter is obviously useful for searching, viewing, filtering, ...
