What is a msg file?

MSG files identify mail messages created by Microsoft email programs Outlook Express and Microsoft Outlook. The extension is widely used as part of the Microsoft Servers line of products and infrastructure solutions.

An MSG file consists of several sub-tagged streams, which each contain certain types of coded information. MSG files include multiple information fields such as date, sender, recipient, attachments and message body, among others. MSG files are compatible with programs using Microsoft MAPI Messaging Applications Programming Interface and also offer mobile and web-based access.  An EML file is another type of email file.  JPG and PCX files are used for pictures.
