    Unable to view Outlook 2016 email in browser

    You cannot open Office Outlook email in a browser. You must use Office's Outlook program to open your email. Browsers cannot open mht files. Note that Win 10 Outlook.com in the Mail App is not related to Office's Outlook. Don't use the Mail App for your
    business mail. It is for the home user and webmail.

    To open links in any email, you must choose a default browser. Search for Default Apps and choose a browser.
