Know About MSG and PST in Detail-

As we all know, both MSG and PST file format is Microsoft Windows Outlook file extension, but Outlook MSG Email file and PST file are different from each other. Outlook Data file or Database file is PST (Personal Storage Table) and stores all Outlook data. MSG file or single message folder is also used to store information, but it stores a single Outlook message with header information, body text, attachments, sender and receiver information, etc.

Why is it necessary to convert Outlook MSG to PST?

If you have multiple MSG files collected as a backup in a single folder. Then, in that case, multiple MSG files can not be managed one by one. It's a time-consuming process that frustrates users between tons of email messages to access the desired email message.

PST will be useful to those users who want to store unlimited MSG files in one folder and PST is the MS Outlook extension that stands for Personal Storage Table, allowing all Outlook things such as contacts, schedules, email notes, tasks, etc. to be stored. 

One of the MSG file's biggest drawbacks is that it can only be accessed and viewed in MS Outlook. If a user attempts to open a .msg extension file on a platform other than Outlook, an error message will be generated. Users want to migrate MSG to PST for this purpose.

How to Export MSG to PST?

It becomes very difficult for users to open MSG files whenever there is a need to open MSG files in MS Outlook. They don't have the right solution to open MSG files, so they need to convert MSG to PST file that allows MS Outlook to open PST file easily.

  4. Then you will actually see that all of your MSG files are saved in PST format in Outlook.
