1.4 Relationship to Protocols and Other Structures

The .msg File Format has the following relationships to protocols and other structures:

  • It is based on the Compound File Binary File Format, as described in [MS-CFB].

  • It uses structures and data types that are described in [MS-OXCDATA] and [MS-DTYP].

  • It uses the properties that are used by the Message and Attachment Object Protocol, as described in [MS-OXCMSG].

For conceptual background information and overviews of the relationships and interactions between this and other protocols, see [MS-OXPROTO].
