An MSG file is an email message, contact, appointment, or task created or saved within Microsoft Outlook. It may contain one or more email fields, which includes the date, sender, recipient, subject, and message body, or contact information, appointment details, and one or more task descriptions. MSG files are also compatible with other programs that use Microsoft's Messaging Applications Programming Interface (MAPI).

You can create an MSG file by simply dragging and dropping a message, appointment, contact, or task item from an Outlook folder to a folder in Windows Explorer. The message subject will be used as the name of the MSG file. You can also drag and drop the MSG file back into Outlook and it will be formatted appropriately to appear the same way it did before it was exported.
