[Solved] Microsoft Word .msg extension

Postby transistor » Wed Mar 20, 2013 10:48 pm

I have several files with MS Word .msg extensions. Is there a way to convert these to an extension easily readable by Open Office 3.4. I checked Zamzar and they do not support .msg files. TIA. transistor

Are you sure these aren't email messages?

You can open them with your mail client. If you want to retrieve their content, you can hit the Reply or Forward button and then copy and paste their content in a text document.

These are in fact email messages opened with Outlook on my old computer. Does that alter my problem??

No. AOO does not contain an email client like Outlook. The .msg files are NOT Word files. They are emails. Google "msg files" to find programs which open msg files.
