.eml files

if I attache an .eml file to a todo, I can not read it, if I open it on my I-pad. Here I have to convert it in a .msg file. But TODOIST, open it immeditatly. For example I dry to open this file in Google Drive, I get asked, wether I want to open this file with a other app (for example "klamer") and then it works well. What could I do.
Thank you very much for your help :-)

Hi Ulrich,

Please confirm the issue, as we do not have the ability to read files. The files that you upload to notes can only be downloaded. Are you saying it will not download? Unless of course there is an application designed to open that type of link outside of Todoist.

Hi Brendon,

the problem is only, that Todoist opens the .msg file at once. If I do the same with the e-mail file in google drive, I get a question, wether I want to use a other programm to open it. And then all is fine.

So you attach an EML file, then when you try to open it on iOS, it gets converted to a .msg file? Does this occur on the web version as well?
