  1. Instantiate the Viewer object. Specify a file that contains attachments.
  2. Call the getAttachments method. It returns the attachment collection.
  3. Iterate through the collection. To save an attachment, call the saveAttachment method.

The following code snippet shows how to get and save all attachments from the MSG file:

try (Viewer viewer = new Viewer("with_attachments.msg")) {
    List<Attachment> attachments = viewer.getAttachments();

    for (Attachment attachment : attachments) {
        FileOutputStream fileStream = new FileOutputStream(attachment.getFileName());

        viewer.saveAttachment(attachment, fileStream);
