Hello All,

I end up in situations where I have to dump emails (.msg) files into specific folders in my desktop. Now when I go into that folder that has all the .msg file - in order to find my target email, I have to open up EACH .msg file in that folder to get to it. Painful!!

Finally, I found something that makes it easier - viewing and searching .msg file with  file directory view!!

But it TOO expensive. Can you tell me if there is a FREE tool or a much cheaper option that does the the same thing?

Please assist

Have you looked at windows live mail

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentials

If you decide to use this there are two options
1: all the live apps
2: choose the app you want.
Choose mail only.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
