Mail attachment icon ( overlay missing) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hİ all,

    We wrote icon overlay extension and icon handler to explorer for our file types.

    For example;

    For "test.doc.m3s" file, with icon handler we set file icon to word icon and with overlay extension we add key icon overlay. It is working in windows explorer.

    But when we add this file to outlook mail as attachment, outlook doesn't show any icon for this file. I think , it doesn't process icon handler and icon overlay extensions.

    My question is;

    Is there any way to write icon handler and icon overlay extension for outlook ?Or say outlook use that icon handler?

    Thanks in advance.
