NAME ^

Email::Outlook::Message.pm - Read Outlook .msg files

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Email::Outlook::Message;

  my $msg = new Email::Outlook::Message $filename, $verbose;
  my $mime = $msg->to_email_mime;
  $mime->as_string;

DESCRIPTION ^

Parses .msg message files as produced by Microsoft Outlook.

METHODS ^

new($msg, $verbose)
    Parse the file pointed at by $msg. Set $verbose to a true value to
    print information about skipped parts of the .msg file on STDERR.
to_email_mime
    Output result as an Email::MIME object.

BUGS ^

Not all data that is in the .msg file is converted. There are some parts whose meaning escapes me, although more documentation on MIME properties is available these days. Other parts do not make sense outside of Outlook and Exchange.

GPG signed mail is not processed correctly. Neither are attachments of type 'appledoublefile'.

It would be nice if we could write .MSG files too, but that will require quite a big rewrite.
