My wife uses Outlook at work (her pc is on a network )
She's saved numerous emails on CD, which for the most part are .msg file extension.
We have OE installed on the home pc (have Outlook - not installed)
We normally use Thunderbird at home (mail client, not the drink)
I can open the messages in Thunderbird, but much of a given message is unreadable.
In OE (6) I see no option to "open saved message" from a different folder or the CD drive, as I can in Thunderbird. Don't know if that option exists in Outlook.
At least for the messages already saved on CD (with .msg extension), is there an easy way to view / print these on the home pc, EVEN if I do install Outlook, or with OE or Thunderbird, etc?
For future messages, if she saves them on CD, is there a way for her to specify the format they're saved in on CD, so they're easily viewable at home with either OE or Thunderbird? Thanks for any suggestions!
I guess the easiest solution for future is for her to forward messages to home email account, but still might want to save some at work on CD / flash drive.
CORRECTION: Outlook (9.0) - older versin - is installed on home pc.
It also can't open / read the messages saved on CD, even though the file properties say they are "Outlook" files. Maybe that's because the version of Outlook on home pc is considerably older than her version at work??
