Re: changing suffix on files

Just for clarification
the letters following the period at the end of a file name
are known as the file extension.
Example: .msg, .eml, .pdf, .txt.
There are programs that will do what you want, but as already suggested,
it is best to save them as text files from the program that created them.

Please walk with me through a second chance of life:
Converting files usually is not
so easy as just changing the extension. Document types of files with
odd extensions are usually created by application programs that insert control
codes into the files. These codes look pretty strange when you read them
with a ASCII text reader or editor. To really convert them, you need a
program that can strip out the control codes and rewrite them as a plain
ASCII text file.
