Files with the MSG extension are e-mail messages created by Microsoft Outlook. MSG files may be drafts, sent messages or received messages and contain the message body, sender/recipient information, the subject of the message and its date.

MSG is a proprietary file format and can be opened only with Microsoft Outlook or other programs that support the Microsoft Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI).

However, MSG files may be converted to other more accessible document formats such as PDF or TXT.
