Editors' Review

Outlook MSG Viewer for Mac makes it possible for you to open otherwise incompatible Outlook MSG files on your Mac with no extra steps or conversions. All you have to do is install the program, and you'll immediately be able to access messages that just showed up as a jumbled mess previously.

Pros

Quick access: With this program in place, you can access MSG files quickly. It delivers on its promise of producing legible messages on your Mac from otherwise unreadable files.

Attachments and batches: This program will also convert original attachments to messages it opens, so you can see all of the information the sender included quickly. And it supports batch processing of files, so you don't have to go through and open each message individually.

Cons

Uninviting interface: This app's interface is not at all accessible to inexperienced users. It mostly consists of pop-up dialog windows containing technically-worded information with no explanation.

No help: The User Manual link in this program really just takes you to the app's sales page. Here you'll find all the information about what the app can do, but not how to use it once you have it installed. The FAQs page is more of the same, so your only real option for help is to email support. But there is nothing resembling a Quick Start Guide or anything like that.

Bottom Line

Outlook MSG Viewer does make it possible to view MSG files on your Mac. It could be easier to use, but it performs its stated function well. The trial version of the program includes a 20-second delay before opening each message, and you can remove this limitation with a purchase of $9.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Outlook MSG Viewer for Mac 2.1.
