View .msg or .eml files
MsgViewer Pro lets you view, convert and manage email content stored in .msg (Outlook) and .eml files. It installs on Windows desktops and in Citrix/Terminal Services environments. Microsoft Outlook is not required for rendering .msg files, including rich text formatted emails.
With MsgViewer Pro, you search your email, then reply to or forward messages using your favorite desktop email client. Convert your email to PDF, text and other image formats.
MsgViewer Pro’s user interface can be customized by commandline settings, allowing administrators to remove unnecessary product features or menu items.
MsgViewer can render and export .eml and .msg messages that are formatted in rich text, emails, HTML.
MsgViewer Pro is well suited to application sharing environments, such as Citrix. Command line options allow system administrators to control the user interface by disabling the features of MsgViewer Pro. For example, if you want your users to be able to browse a directory of .msg files, but not to print or copy, you can disable those features. 
Install MsgViewer Pro the as default application for .msg or .eml files.
MsgViewer Pro may be optionally installed as the default file handler for Outlook .msg files, or Outlook Express .eml files. Once installed, you can open an email message by simply clicking on it.

Manages emails in recursive directories
By clicking a simple check box called “Read Subfolders,” MsgViewer Pro will automatically search subdirectories, and display any .msg or .eml files that it finds. Uncheck the box if you only want to display files residing in the selected folder. Even if your emails are organized in multiple folders, this powerful feature allows you to search multiple folders without having to select each folder separately.

MsgViewer Pro makes it easy to batch export your .msg or .eml files directly to these formats: PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF, PNG, BMP, TXT or CSV (ansi or Unicode).
You can choose to automatically extract file attachments from a single message, or from many messages as a batch.
Automatically rename messages (or exported messages) using a flexible “Bates Stamp” like naming system.
