I received an email with a file attachment extension of ".msg"  - When launching, I get the message "The form required to view this message cannot be displayed. Contact your administrator". I can right-click/copy, then right-click/save to c:, then view it OK. Why does Outlook 97 not recognize this file? (Win95).

MSG is a extension for an actual message... It thinks that it is one of its own formats, but it really isnt... You need ot have who ever sends you the email not to call it *.msg, but something like *.txt
