I have an exchange 2003 server with sp2 running on server 2003. When people running vista send a word or excel docx to someone running xp on the domain, owa wants to open the docx as a zip file. Everyone is running office 2007 and I have updated the mime on the exchange server. how do you correct this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Recheck your mime settings:
1. Open Exchange System Manager
2. Right click on Global Settings -> Internet Message Formats
3. Click on Properties
4. Double check that the associated extension exists for docx files.
5. Make sure the mime type is correct. Make sure there are no leading or ending spaces.

This is the list of mime types:
.docm application/vnd.ms-word.document.macroEnabled.12
.docx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document
.dotm application/vnd.ms-word.template.macroEnabled.12
.dotx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.template
.potm application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.template.macroEnabled.12
.potx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.template
.ppam application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.addin.macroEnabled.12
.ppsm application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.slideshow.macroEnabled.12
.ppsx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.slideshow
.pptm application/vnd.ms-powerpoint.presentation.macroEnabled.12
.pptx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation
.xlam application/vnd.ms-excel.addin.macroEnabled.12
.xlsb application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.binary.macroEnabled.12
.xlsm application/vnd.ms-excel.sheet.macroEnabled.12
.xlsx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet
.xltm application/vnd.ms-excel.template.macroEnabled.12
.xltx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.template
