I hope someone can help.
I've received a flash drive with thousands of files on it. Within this FD are quite a large amount of files with the extension .msg example: fwd notes.msg
I know that these are most likely e-mails that were sent as doc's, but I need to open these files. How do I do this? Can I do this?
Also, some files are as follows; ~$umbthing.doc but will not open with Word!
I'm so confused!Don't take life to seriously...you're not getting out alive anyway!

Read the following Mac Rumors Guide: Link which will take care of the *.msg files.
As for the ~$.doc files, they're not going to be readable, or at least readable to make any sense. Those are files which were saved as partial backups of the originals because of an inadvertent shutdown (Windows crash or Office crash). You might be able to read them with Textedit. ??
