    I've been give a FD with a number of files to check, many are pdfs or word but over are 100 are msg file type.
    I understand (fm google) these are Outlook email msgs.
    I don't have Outlook or any other email program loaded, only use webmail.

    Did read on google if I download "X' or "x" then open them I can select a number and convert to pdf.
    Alternatively I can try and borrow a laptop with outlook on

    Ta will do tomorrow.
    Just used friend's laptop with Outlook for a few hrs and thought I'd copy some to word doc then look at them later at home.
    Alas can only copy body of msg to word not sender or recipient which not much use, with webmail I just hi light all and Ctrl C to word.
    So https://fileinfo.com/software/windows_file_viewer will be easier as can use my own comp
