Mystic doesn't do anything with .MSG files.
Are you saying you are using 3rd party software to generate a .MSG file that has an attachment? Typically you'd generate those files in the node's filebox and it will send when you next speak.
I can build in something to process .MSG files if its needed, but I
want to make sure I fully understand the problem.

it is also not the first time that MSG support for a ""special""
netmail area has been asked for... that's really all that's needed in mystic... that plus the MSG processing code... it should be real easy since the message library code used has support for the popular message base formats ;)

That is what I am doing now. Makenl creates a *.MSG with my net segment attached. I don't have anything right now to handle *.MSG so I moved that segment to his filebox and it goes to his system but no message is sent.
If what you want is the .MSG to get sent, then shouldn't you have both
the segment and the .MSG created in the filebox so that all of it is
I'm just not quite clear on why a function needs to be added into
Mystic for this, when filebox does the same thing?
