Importing Outlook Message Format Unicode *.msg Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

    I usually develop in Microsoft Excel and Access, not Outlook.  I just saved a complex email in Outlook 2010 as a "Outlook Message Format" which is the *.msg format.  If I double-click on the msg file, it brings it into the outlook with all recipients, subject, body, etc.  But I can't find a way to bring it in other than the double click.

    Is there a way to import it AFTER outlook 2010 is open without double-clicking the file through the normal user interface?
