Reading an Outlook Message (MSG) File

To use Office Automation objects for Microsoft Outlook, you need to add references to Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Interop for Outlook libraries to your project.

 // Create a new Application Class
            _Application outlook = new Outlook.Application();
            // Create a MailItem object
            MailItem item = (MailItem)outlook.CreateItemFromTemplate("test.msg", Type.Missing);
            // Access different fields of the message
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Subject:{0}", item.Subject));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Sender Email Address:{0}", item.SenderEmailAddress));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("SenderName:{0}", item.SenderName));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("TO:{0}", item.To));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("CC:{0}", item.CC));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("BCC:{0}", item.BCC));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Html Body:{0}", item.HTMLBody));
            System.Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Text Body:{0}", item.Body));


To access the Aspose.Email.Outlook objects, you need to add a reference to Aspose.Email to your project.
 // Create attendees of the meeting
MailAddressCollection attendees = new MailAddressCollection();

// Set up appointment
Appointment app = new Appointment(
    "Location", // location of meeting
    DateTime.Now, // start date
    DateTime.Now.AddHours(1), // end date
    new MailAddress(""), // organizer
    attendees); // attendees

// Set up message that needs to be sent
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
msg.From = "";
msg.To = "";
msg.Subject = "appointment request";
msg.Body = "you are invited";

// Add meeting request to the message

// Set up the SMTP client to send email with meeting request
SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient("host", 25 ,"user", "password");
