I have a historical database that has msg attachments and when I try to open the attachments I receive a message that there is no program associated with this file.  I had the same problem with doc files but downloaded the Word viewer and that worked fine.  Is there some type of free viewer for MSG files?  If so, please advise where I can obtain it.  Thanks in advance for your help.
