Why to Convert
As a C++ developer, you may need to add email conversion features inside your applications. This could be for a variety of reasons, such as to make the emails easier to read, to make them more accessible, or to make them more compatible with other applications.
How Aspose.Total Helps for MSG to JPEG Conversion
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of APIs that can help you to easily add email conversion features to your applications. It includes two APIs, Aspose.Email for C++ and Aspose.Words for C++, which can be used to convert MSG file format to HTML and then export HTML to JPEG.
Using Aspose.Email for C++, you can easily convert MSG files to HTML. This API provides a wide range of features, such as the ability to read and write MSG files, convert MSG to HTML, and more. It also supports a variety of file formats, including EML, MHTML, and Outlook PST.
Once you have converted the MSG file to HTML, you can use Aspose.Words for C++ to export the HTML to JPEG. This API provides a range of features, such as the ability to read and write a variety of document formats, including DOC, DOCX, RTF, and HTML. It also supports a variety of image formats, including JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.
By using Aspose.Total for C++, you can easily add email conversion features to your applications. It provides two powerful APIs that can be used to convert MSG files to HTML and then export HTML to JPEG. This makes it easy to add email conversion features to your applications, allowing you to quickly and easily add the features you need.
C++ API to Convert MSG to JPEG
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 Jpeg as save format doc->Save(u"convertedFile.Jpeg");
Parse MSG File via C++
Not only you can convert your MSG to JPEG, 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 JPEG File Format Editing
You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from MSG to JPEG. 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.Jpeg");

What is MSG File Format?
MSG is a file format used by Microsoft Outlook to store individual email messages. MSG stands for “Outlook Message Format”. It contains all the components of an email, including the sender, recipient, subject, message body, attachments, and other metadata.
MSG files are proprietary to Microsoft Outlook and are commonly used for archiving or transferring email messages. They can be created when users save individual emails from their mailbox or when messages are exported or backed up from Outlook.
The MSG format preserves the original formatting and properties of the email, allowing it to be viewed and accessed in the same way as it was in the Outlook client. This includes retaining rich text formatting, hyperlinks, embedded images, and attachments.
MSG files can be opened and viewed directly in Microsoft Outlook. They can also be opened by other email clients that support the MSG format or by specialized software designed for MSG file handling. Additionally, MSG files can be converted to other formats, such as EML (Email Message Format), for compatibility with different email clients.
One notable feature of MSG files is the ability to store email attachments within the file itself. This ensures that all related content is kept together and can be easily accessed. It also simplifies the process of sharing or archiving emails with their attachments intact.
What is JPEG File Format?
JPEG, short for Joint Photographic Experts Group, is a widely adopted standard for compressing photographic images. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), JPEG employs a lossy compression algorithm to reduce the file size of images. During compression, certain image data is discarded, allowing for smaller file sizes. The extent of data loss can be adjusted, enabling users to balance file size and image quality according to their requirements.
As a highly popular format, JPEG finds extensive usage in storing and sharing photos. It is widely supported by various image editing software and web publishing platforms. Its compatibility makes it easy for users to work with JPEG files across different applications and platforms.
One of the key advantages of JPEG is its ability to significantly reduce file sizes while maintaining acceptable image quality. This makes it ideal for web-based image sharing, where smaller file sizes enable faster uploading and downloading. JPEG compression achieves higher levels of compression by eliminating redundant image information and exploiting the limitations of human visual perception. While this results in a loss of some image details, the trade-off between file size and image quality can be adjusted to suit specific needs.
