What is a .MSG file?

msg file icon

MSG files are created by Microsoft Outlook when a user exports an email message. The files may also store contacts, tasks, and appointments. MSG files are often exported by users looking to back up email 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 archived 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 or HTML formats or to plain text.
