    Hi Sandra

    You can simply open MSG file by changing the file extension to .mht or .html and open that file in a browser. You can read the entire data within the MSG file.

    I am a non-technical person and that’s why I didn’t get the method. Can you again explain the process step-by-step?

    Ok, Follow these steps:

    1. If you are using Outlook, then you can select the specific email and save that message to the desired location. There is no need to do this if you have orphan MSG files.
    2. Now, the Outlook message is saved in MSG file format. Right-click on that file and click on Rename option.
    3. Remove msg and write html or mht and change the extension of the file.
    4. After that, open the file with a browser like Chrome.
    5. Now, you can open and read MSG files without Outlook easily.

    I have tried this method. I have a bulk of MSG emails and this method is tasking a lot of time to open and read MSG files. Please suggest any simple process that requires fewer efforts as well as less time.

    Ok. To open bulk MSG emails simultaneously, you can try SysTools MSG Reader tool to view Outlook MSG files without Outlook.
