Opening MSG attachment

Act saved email message as xxxx.MSG - UGH 

How do I open it?

When I click attachment, windows is looking for an associated file type.

Re: Opening MSG attachment

Hello, Microsoft Outlook is the primary program used to open MSG files, but if you don't have MS Outlook installed, you can install and Use Free MSG Viewer

 

Do not forget to make a daily backup of your Act! database, and copy the ZIP file of that backup to a USB drive or external disk for greater security.

 

Best regards and good luck.
