Encoding Problem with msg-Format Unicode/Standard


I’ve attached a simple application to demonstrate the issue. The app converts *.msg in the program folder to word documents.

The same Message was saved as Unicode and std. Outlook-Message. The problem is that characters like ‘öüä’ are not correct displayed in both szenarios (the HtmlBody is loaded incorrect).

Is this a bug or can you give me a hint how to open/convert both messages correct?


Hi Wolfgang,

Thank you for using Aspose.Email.

Can you please confirm to us if characters are not correctly displayed in both scenarios, as I can’t see any incorrect characters when 1 of these messages is converted. For an intermediate output, I used the following sample code at my end:

string filename = "AW Parkplätze_nicht_funktionierend"; //first file
//filename = "AW Parkplätze1_funktionierend"; //second file
MailMessage mailMsg = MailMessage.Load("EMAIL_453678\\" + filename + ".msg", MessageFormat.Msg);
mailMsg.Save("EMAIL_453678\\" + filename + ".mhtml", MailMessageSaveType.MHtmlFromat);
Document doc = new Document("EMAIL_453678\\" + filename + ".mhtml");
doc.Save("EMAIL_453678\\" + filename + ".doc");


I’ve attached the output I get when using your code. Just for sure I also attached a jpeg.

There are still incorrect caracters!
