Hello friends,

I'm developing a plugin for a DMS under Ubuntu 10.04. There is the need to extract mail attachments and body from uploaded .msg files. For those who don't know .msg is a MS Outlook file format (http://www.fileformat.info/format/outlookmsg/). On Windows we used a .msg extractor but on Ubuntu i googled for hours and still haven't found anything.
There is one serious issue here:
.msg is Microsoft technology and most .msg extractors use Outlook and .net to get those attachments and body.

Do you know any workaround to make things work on a Ubuntu machine?
