Outlook Item definition: The Outlook Item MSG (.msg) file format is a syntax for storing a single Message object, such as an email, an appointment, a contact, a task, and so on, in a file.

Once we select the desired folder, at the bottom of the window we have a preview of the messages that are in the specific folder. All we have to do is to select the message that we want to Insert as an Outlook Item in our new mail. At the right we can either select to Insert the Outlook Item as Text Only or as an a Attachment.
