Reading .MSG files without installing Outlook on the machine

Does anyone know a way for a bot to read .msg files without installing Outlook on a server?

There are some third party libraries that let you do this, though you will need to write your own code to use them.

Or you can use a free converter site or application. Google “msg to txt converter” and you should see plenty of options.

Thanks Daniel

My concern using 3rd party libraries or activities is that they havent been vented with UiPath. My team doesnt have the skillset to vary the 3rd party. Maybe the community has some recommendations on a safe source?

Thanks for the msg to txt idea, I will look into that.
