I can't open these files, any advice?


The original hosting service was with mochahost. It was a windows plan.
The control panel was plesk 9.
I used the CP backup tool to backup the complete account with all the domains.

The backup process produced a single file, compressed.
In the file there are more compressed files, one of the is the mail (its name is:, where mydomainname was my real domain..

After extracting this file and sub-files, i can access almost any file (html's, php's and others) not the emails.

The files have the msg extension.

I hope that now my question is clearer. any help will be appriciated
