eMail Attachment Format (*.eml/*.msg)

eMail Attachment Format (*.eml/*.msg)

  
im having a little problem with the email attachment format
from the emails espace used in the cases espace

when an email is uploaded as an email
its format is *.eml

which cant be opened using outlook
as i seem to need a *.msg file

i tried simply changing the filename ending to *.msg
but that didnt work

does anyone know a clean way to creating a *.msg attachment, instead of *.eml?

thank you very much!
any ideas on how to convert *.eml to *.msg at all?

thank you very much!
Hi Manuel, there's this wonderful tool called Google, which can provide you with about any answer. See e.g. http://www.msoutlook.info/question/354 for how to open eml in Outlook, or http://www.emltopst.com/convert-eml-to-msg/ for how to convert eml to msg (or simply google for "convert eml to msg" (without the quotes).
thank you, i stumbled over those too

but i was aiming for a server side solution

 Hi Manuel

I see this as a Microsoft OutLook issue, since the .eml format is the standard email message format. The fact that Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 doesn't supported it is something that should be addressed by Microsoft. Ultimately, if you need a server-side solution, this means that you need to build your own .msg format message.

You can do this by using a 3rd party tool like Aspose.net, or you can code you own converted based on Microsoft specification document below:

By the way, for a client side solution, microsoft also has a fix for that, available at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/956693. This will allow outlook to open .eml files.
