MSG Viewer for Outlook App Description

Looking to open those frustrating Microsoft Outlook MSG, OFT, and Winmail.dat files on your Mac? We've got you covered. MSG files are often generated by the PC version of Microsoft Outlook. This proprietary format is easily read on other PCs, but it is unrecognizable on Macs - even if you are using Microsoft Outlook for Mac or Apple Mail. MSG Viewer for Outlook works like magic by converting the unrecognizable format into the email that your friend or coworker intended to send you - and it all happens in a split second. With this easy-to-use program, you'll be able to open all of those MSG files seamlessly in your favorite Mac email clients. Batch processing and conversion of Outlook MSG contacts (.vcf) is also supported. The free version only converts selected portions of the MSG file. The licensed version (available via in-app purchase) activates all features, including complete conversion of MSG files and batch processing.

App Reviews

  • Crippleware

    By snowtravel
    Agree with the criticisms. I have no idea what the app costs, ‘cause I deleted it after it crippled itself (after converting 3 msg files IIRC). No problem either (1) charging what the market will bear, or (2) showing ads, but be up front about it, OK? Saying it’s free is just plain false.
  • Best MSG importer I’ve found yet

    By Le_Jawa
    I started using this app (as well as competing products) today, and so far, I’m impressed with this one. The conversion from MSG file to a message in my Outlook database seems to be flawless. Unlike its competitors, MSG Viewer for Outlook picked up all text formatting, images, etc correctly. That, and the fact that it handles MSG files and Winmail.dat for $15 puts this one at a better price point than the other reputable products. Until MS adds MSG and other Outlook file support to Outlook for Mac, it looks like this is going to be my product of choice.
  • I thought this was free. Not!

    By Gordon1468
    You wil end up getting prompted to pay a very hefty fee for a license after using it a few times. I have never had another App Store app do that. They have always been up front on whether you have to pay or not. So I did some additional web searches and there are much better options that do the same thing. Not good. Don’t buy.
  • this app asks you to download another app outside mac

    useless app in itself
  • FYI, free trial is limited to 3 emails

    By SFLifter
    converted 3 files, which was great. but free trial stopped after 3, only showing the header and a couple lines. I only have 10 emails to view, so not worth it for me. But if you have to do this regularly or for a lot of emails, might be OK
  • Helps me deal with absurdly ridiculous forms of communication

    By anonymouse3845398475
    Some of our clients send attached .msg files instead of just, you know, sending an e-mail. This helps all of us at the office deal with antiquated file types used only by technologically-illiterate individuals.
  • Crippled Junk

    By Microsoft Teams
    Don’t bother it will nag you every time you open a file, just after you open a few.
  • Works well

    By bsdjunkie
    Just installed it today and tried it. Did not install the ‘preview’ component off of the web, but just dragging and dropping a .MSG file to the viewer window did work! Nice to have something handy like this.
  • Doesn’t work

    By EnglishStudentOfLanguage
    This is simply old fashioned crippleware. Doesn’t show attachments (if there are any). Doesn’t show full email. But it does provide a handy URL to payment methods to obtain enable functionality. There also is a proper version elsewhere in the AppStore, but this certainly is not.
  • dont let free app fool you

    By Nz4ypt
    $16 for a small converter is TOO high. 5 dollar maybe acceptable.
