C++ API to Convert MSG to GIF
Get Started with C++ File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load the MSG file to be converted System::SharedPtr<MailMessage> msg = MailMessage::Load(u"sourceFile.msg"); // save MSG as a HTML msg->Save(u"HtmlOutput.html", SaveOptions::get_DefaultHtml()); // load HTML with an instance of Document System::SharedPtr<Document> doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"HtmlOutput.html"); // call save method while passing Gif as save format doc->Save(u"convertedFile.Gif");
Parse MSG File via C++
Not only you can convert your MSG to GIF, but you can read, manipulate, and parse MSG document. You can get subject, address, body, recipients information of the email by using MapiMessage class of Aspose.Email for C++ API. For example, you can check for a specific sender email for the conversion by using get_SenderEmailAddress() property.
// create an instance of MapiMessage from file System::SharedPtr<MapiMessage> msg = MapiMessage::FromFile(dataDir + L"message.msg"); // get subject System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Subject:") + msg->get_Subject()); // get from address System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"From:") + msg->get_SenderEmailAddress()); // get body System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Body") + msg->get_Body()); // get recipients information System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Recipient: ") + msg->get_Recipients());
C++ API to Restrict GIF File Format Editing
You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from MSG to GIF. Adding protection to your document is a simple process, as all you need to do is apply the protection method to your document. You can set protection type to ReadOnly to restrict the user to edit the document.
// create a new document and protect it with a password. auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(); // apply Document Protection. doc->Protect(ProtectionType::ReadOnly, u"password"); // save the document. doc->Save(u"DocumentProtection.PasswordProtection.Gif");

MSG What is MSG File Format?
MSG is a file format used by Microsoft Outlook and Exchange to store email messages, contact, appointment, or other tasks.

MSG files are also suitable with the programs that need Microsoft’s Messaging Applications Programming Interface (MAPI).Read More
GIF What is GIF File Format?
A GIF or Graphical Interchange Format is a type of highly compressed image. Owned by Unisys, GIF uses the LZW compression algorithm that does not degrade the image quality. For each image GIF typically allow up to 8 bits per pixel and up to 256 colours are allowed across the image. In contrast to a JPEG image, which can display up to 16 million colours and fairly touches the limits of the human eye. Back when the internet emerged, GIFs remained the best choice because they required low bandwidth and compatible for the graphics that consume solid areas of colour. An animated GIF combines numerous images or frames into a single file and displays them in a sequence to generate an animated clip or a short video. The colour limitations are up to 256 for each frame and are likely to be the least suitable for reproducing other images and photographs with colour gradient.Read More
