Convert .msg to .eml

I moved my e-Mail from Microsoft Outlook to use in Thunderbird. All the old e-Mails that I saved from Microsoft Outlook are in .msg format.

To read .msg using Thunderbird is not possible, at least for now.

So, we need to convert from .msg to .eml

By the way, there are many tools available to use but most of them have price.


I found one that is shareware name "E-Mail-Converter". It's just fine. Has some bugs though. Usable.

The important restriction is that you cannot have space or too long file name in the .msg file when you want to convert.

Try it from

Unfortunately, when I remove Microsoft Office from my computer and try to open E-Mail-Converter program again. It shows pop-up that it need Microsoft Outlook which I don't want to use the Outlook program any more. :(


One I ran the program, unhandled exception occurred. :( Cannot use at all.
