Outllook/exchange email in database

I want to store outlook/exchange emails in a database by dragging and
dropping them to my delphi application.

I don`t know the format how those messages are stored on the clipboard.

If I drag the messages to my desktop they will get extension 'msg' but I
can not open them anymore.

Is there somebody who did something like this ?

Does somebody know the clipboard format for outlook/exchange ?

Is there a simple viewer for those email messages (is it possible to view
them by mailnews.dll for instance ) ?

Any suggestions are more than welcome.

Thanks an advance
