    I am running outlook express and have some old emails on cd that I am tying to open and view. they have the file extension of .msg and I cannot figure out how to open and view them. I have tried to import to express and it won't work.
    The messages may have been done in MS Outlook, I cannot recall.
    Any Ideas?

    You will need to install Outlook to read the .msg file.

    Outlook Express will not be able to read them.

    I ended up sending one of the .msg files to a friend with Outlook and his opened it up.... I am going to try to find a free download of it on MS website or buy a cheap version.

    This was the first time for me to use this forum. I think it is very helpful, thanks for your response.

    I'll be back.

    :)
