    Is there a way to convert .msg file into a text file? .msg files are outlook messages. The reason is that I would like to download all of my gmail messages, save to .msg using 3rd party email client and then convert them into text file so that way they are be easily searchable.

    Yeah but I got tens of thousands of emails. I would not want to go one by one to do that. I want to save all of them into a text file.
    The Bat gives me an option to save mail into .msg format, which can be read by all email clients but it cannot be read by Microsoft Word or Notepad.

    Read the link, where it says you connect via pop3 and download all emails
