NAME
       msgconvert - Convert Outlook .msg files to mbox format

SYNOPSIS
       msgconvert [options] <file.msg>...

       msgconvert --outfile <outfile> <file.msg>

	 Options:
	   --mbox <file>      deliver messages to mbox file <file>
	   --outfile <oufile> write message to <outfile> or - for STDOUT
	   --verbose	      be verbose
	   --help	      help message

OPTIONS
       --mbox
		   Deliver to the given	mbox file instead of creating individual .eml
		   files.

       --outfile
		   Writes the message into the outfile instead of individual .eml files. For
		   STDOUT "-" can be used as outfile. This option cannot be used together with
		   multiple <file.msg> instances.

       --verbose
		   Print information about skipped parts of the	.msg file.

       --help
		   Print a brief help message.

DESCRIPTION
       This program will convert the messages contained	in the Microsoft
       Outlook files <file.msg>...  to message/rfc822 files with extension
       .eml.  Alternatively, if	the --mbox option is present, all messages
       will be put in the given	mbox file.  This program will complain about
       unrecognized OLE	parts in the input files on stderr.

BUGS
       The program will	not check whether output files already exist. Also, if
       you feed	it "foo.MSG" and "foo.msg", you'll end up with one "foo.eml",
       containing one of the messages.

       Not all data that's in the .MSG file is converted. There	simply are
       some parts whose	meaning	escapes	me. One	of these must contain the date
       the message was sent, for example. Formatting of	text messages will
       also be lost. YMMV.
