What is .msg file extension?

The .MSG file extension is used for the message created or saved within Microsoft Outlook. It contains multiple e-mail fields, including the date, sender, recipient, subject, and message body. It is compatible with other programs that use Microsoft Messaging Applications Programming Interface (MAPI). The .MSG files allow users to download email via POP 3 clients to view their email messages and attachments even if they are not connected to the Internet.
