    I suggest to creating a Domino setting or rule to automatically convert .msg attachments to PDF or EML files when the mail arrives on the server. The Java code for such a conversion is openly available on GitHub or as an open Java library.



    A .MSG file is completely useless outside of Microsoft world.
