NAME

       msgconvert - Convert Outlook .msg files to mbox format

SYNOPSIS

       msgconvert [options] <file.msg>...

       msgconvert --outfile <outfile> <file.msg>

         Options:
           --mbox <file>      deliver messages to mbox file <file>
           --outfile <oufile> write message to <outfile> or - for STDOUT
           --verbose          be verbose
           --help             help message

OPTIONS

       --mbox
                   Deliver to the given mbox file instead of creating individual .eml
                   files.

       --outfile
                   Writes the message into the outfile instead of individual .eml files. For
                   STDOUT "-" can be used as outfile. This option cannot be used together with
                   multiple <file.msg> instances.

       --verbose
                   Print information about skipped parts of the .msg file.

       --help
                   Print a brief help message.

DESCRIPTION

       This program will convert the messages contained in the Microsoft Outlook files
       <file.msg>...  to message/rfc822 files with extension .eml.  Alternatively, if the --mbox
       option is present, all messages will be put in the given mbox file.  This program will
       complain about unrecognized OLE parts in the input files on stderr.

BUGS

       The program will not check whether output files already exist. Also, if you feed it
       "foo.MSG" and "foo.msg", you'll end up with one "foo.eml", containing one of the messages.

       Not all data that's in the .MSG file is converted. There simply are some parts whose
       meaning escapes me. One of these must contain the date the message was sent, for example.
       Formatting of text messages will also be lost. YMMV.
