Actions Status

Extracts emails and attachments saved in Microsoft Outlook's .msg files

The python package extract_msg automates the extraction of key email data (from, to, cc, date, subject, body) and the email's attachments.

Usage

You can install the package from PyPI as msglite. Then use the API as follows:

from msglite import Message

msg = Message('path/to/message.msg')
print(msg.subject)
print(msg.to)
# The API currently does not differentiate Sender and From cleanly:
print(msg.sender)
print(msg.body)

Field types:

  • 001E - PtypString8 - Non-unicode string
  • 001F - PtypString - UTF-18 LE string
  • 0102 - PtypBinary - Blob

Credits

This package is a lightweight and functionally extended fork of msg-extractor written by Matthew Walker and Ken Peterson.
