This API provides a range of features that make it easy to convert HTML to DOCX, including support for a variety of document formats, advanced formatting options, and the ability to manipulate and customize the output.
By using Aspose.Total for C++, you can easily and quickly convert OFT file format to DOCX. This comprehensive suite of APIs makes it easy to add email conversion features to your applications, and ensures that the output is of the highest quality.
C++ API to Convert OFT to DOCX
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 OFT file to be converted
System::SharedPtr<MailMessage> msg = MailMessage::Load(u"sourceFile.oft");
// save OFT as a HTML
// load HTML with an instance of Document
System::SharedPtr<Document> doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"HtmlOutput.html");
// call save method while passing Docx as save format
Parse OFT File via C++
Not only you can convert your OFT to DOCX, but you can read, manipulate, and parse OFT 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.oft");
// 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 DOCX File Format Editing
You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from OFT to DOCX. 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.
// save the document.

What is OFT File Format?
The OFT file format is associated with Microsoft Outlook and is used for creating email message templates. OFT stands for Outlook Form Template. It is a file format that allows users to design and save pre-formatted email templates with specific layouts, formatting, and content.
OFT files are typically used when users want to create consistent and standardized email messages for repetitive tasks or common communications. They can include placeholders for variables such as recipient names or subject lines, making it easier to personalize the template for individual recipients.
When an OFT file is opened in Microsoft Outlook, it creates a new email message based on the template design. Users can then customize the content, add or remove recipients, and make any necessary modifications before sending the email.
OFT files are particularly useful for businesses or individuals who frequently send similar types of emails, such as newsletters, announcements, or responses to common inquiries. By using OFT templates, users can save time and ensure consistency in their email communications.
It’s important to note that OFT files can only be opened and used with Microsoft Outlook. Other email clients or applications may not support this file format. Additionally, when sharing OFT templates with others, it is essential to ensure that they are using Microsoft Outlook to utilize the template properly.
