What is an .MSG file?

MSG files are emails created by Microsoft Outlook when a user exports an email message. The files may also store contacts, tasks, appointments, and other Outlook items. Outlook users often export emails as MSG files to back up messages, share messages, or view messages when offline.

You may receive an MSG file from a friend, family member, or coworker sharing an exported email. Or, you may encounter an MSG file you saved on your computer. Regardless of how you acquire the file, File Viewer Plus can open MSG files, allowing you to view them in a layout similar to other email programs. You can also convert MSG files to EML, HTML, or plain text files.
