Hi,

I have downloaded the trial version of MailBee Outlook Converter and using it to convert MSG File to EML in C#.

The converter is converting the file but there are some issue
1) On converting extra data is added to the From Field
xyz </O=abc/OU=EXCHANGE ADMINISTRATIVE GROUP (ABCDEFGH23SPDLT)/CN=RECIPIENTS/CN=jkl mno532>

2) Some special character are converted in different way like is converted to �.

3) Converted .eml file contains an additional file (winmail.dat) which is not present in original .msg file.

Kindly provide a solution to these issues.

Outlook Converter doesn't modify those values, it supplies them the way they are. When the email address looks like that, it means it's something retrieved from Exchange address book, and our product doesn't have access to that one of course.

That's not really about conversion, but about how resulting HTML body itself is displayed. Such effect is usually caused by charset not defined in richtext body.

Such file, known as TNEF container, is used by Outlook by appending various objects such as attachments or multiple bodies to emails, and Outlook handles those transparently of course. While this format isn't something native for EML, and Outlook Converter leaves it as is, MailBee offers a parser for such files.

Hi Igor,

Thanks for your prompt response.

I want to convert the msg file to eml with same format (both files should be identical) so do I have to use this Parser class or is there any other way which I can use it to convert it.

If you'd like to adjust the structure of HTML body in resulting EML, e.g. append meta tag with charset definition, or remove some character/line occurences, there is HTML component which can be used for that purpose, one of the examples is found here.
