[ANN] ruby-msg-1.2.17 (converter for outlook msg files)

ruby-msg is still, AFAIK, the best option for converting .msg files that
a) doesn’t rely on you running outlook on windows to do the conversion;
and
b) is free software

Simply:

  1. download the gem
    (http://ruby-msg.googlecode.com/files/ruby-msg-1.2.17.gem)
  2. gem install ruby-msg-1.2.17.gem
  3. convert some msg files. there is now a mbox mode - (msgtool -m *.msg

mbox)

Details at http://code.google.com/p/ruby-msg/, and at the wiki
http://code.google.com/p/ruby-msg/wiki/Home.

Sample code using the library:

require ‘msg’

msg = Msg.open filename

access to the 3 main data stores

msg.recipients

=> [#<Recipient:’‘Marley, Bob’ [email protected]’>]

msg.attachments

=> [#, #<Attachment

filename=‘blah2.tif’>]
msg.properties

=> #<Properties … normalized_subject=‘Testing’ …

creation_time=#<DateTime: 2454042.45074714,0,2299161> …>
