Need to read ccmail for dos archive from 1997

I have several files that I need to open.  I believe they were saved off to the floppies in my possession from Lotus ccmail for DOS (version unknown and long gone).

If anyone can recommend a path or program for accurately opening and reading these emails, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have attached one of the files for your convenience.   I have others that I can convert once I know how.

We no longer have any Lotus products in our office.

Please note that I have added a fake .txt extension in order to get the file uploaded.  It did not exist with the original file.

Thank you

Outlook seems to provide support for importing ccmail.  Check which version of Outlook you have and see what import features it has.

I'm using Outlook 2007.

There appears to be no support for this import - I've tried all options unless there's a special plugin I'm missing.

You may have to reinstall it and make sure that the import options for cc mail is included.

Also, you may need an older version of outlook.

I hope this helps !

Don't know how good the product is.

Bunch more tools and converters here but don't know what use they'd be.
