Could not open Outlook mail items

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have an outlook mail which I have saved on my desktop which is in .msg format. I have Outlook.au3 UDF but it's used to open .txt and .ini files. Is it possible to open Outlook mails in .msg format and read the body of mail and display in Notepad?

Use _OL_ItemCreate and pass the name of the msg file as $sTemplate parameter.
