I am going to respond to both of you in this one post. I was going to respond that MSG files are not that close to MHTML and that youc an't read them as a normal text file. The second post from you guys addressed that though.
After my initial post, I did discover that Aspose.Network includes several namespaces and classes that deal directly with MSG files. These classes may do what I want so let me explain to you what my purpose is.
My main need for Aspose.Words (and Cells and PDF as well) is to provide functionality to allow me to find and extract specific pieces of information from a document. The documents come in many different flavors and I recently discovered that some of them are MSG. On top of extract text, I also need to extract images.
With that said, can I use Aspose.Network to open the MSG and save the body as RTF, or text or HTML or something else that I can then open in Aspose.Words to extract the text and images? Also, if the MSG happens to have attachments (a .DOC file for example) can those be pulled from the MSG and saved so I can open them in Aspose.Words?
