Opening .msg Outlook files in Ubuntu or Linux Mint

Someone sent me an Outlook .msg file, and I just can’t open it in Linux Mint.

So I did a little research and I found a solution.

You need to have Mozilla Thunderbird installed, or any email client able to open .eml files, and the msgconvert tool, thanks to Matijs van Zuijlen.

To install msgconvert, open a shell, then type:

sudo apt-get install libemail-outlook-message-perl

Then cd to the folder where you have the .msg file or files, then type:

msgconvert *.msg

 

Here are a few useful links related to msgconvert:
