Convert .msg to .eml


I have a folder of .msg files that I have been able to attain the attachments of via creating a mailMessage object via the Get Outlook Mail activity.

However, some of these attachments are themselves .msg files, and I need to grab their attachments too. I’ve found an activity to help but need the .msg files in the .eml format. Any suggestions?

Many thanks

Hope it helps,


Thanks Sahil, unfortunately just changing the extensions won’t work

You may try EAGetMail library (commercial)


Thanks J0ska, would like to be able to do this without having to download some additional program

Well, this is not a “program” but just another library/deppendency package to be included via the Package Manager

If you do not like it you will need to code it yourself :slight_smile:
