What is a MSMESSAGESTORE file?

Files that contain .msmessagestore file extension are used by the Windows Mail software application. The MSMESSAGESTORE files that are used by this program do not contain a copy of the emails that have been sent or received by the email application. What they do contain is an index of the mail properties that are displayed in the Windows Mail interface, such as who the email is from, the subject line and the date of the email.

Because the MSMESSAGESTORE files do not contain the full content of the actual emails that were sent, these files have an associated EML file. The EML file is the file that contains the information that was sent using the email application.
