Howto convert Outlook .msg files to normal MIME mails

June 29, 2014

Just got a Microsoft Outlook .msg file and I needed to convert it to something I could read on the console. Its quite simple to convert it to a normal MIME mail .. here for Ubuntu 14.04 but it should be as simple on other distributions:

sudo apt-get install libemail-outlook-message-perl libemail-localdelivery-perl
wget http://www.matijs.net/software/msgconv/msgconvert.pl
perl msgconvert.pl filename.msg

the result file name is filename.msg.mime.
