MSG to PDF features

The MSG to PDF Ruby SDK converts MSG email files into PDF.

This Ruby SDK allows you to customize various aspects, such as email headers, page orientation, page size, and margins. It also provides options for compressing files, converting email attachments, and merging them with the email body to create PDF and PDF/A-compliant documents.

This Ruby SDK is especially valuable for businesses needing to maintain an accessible and standardized email archive and for legal firms that require secure, tamper-proof email documentation for evidentiary purposes.

ConvertAPI provides a Ruby Gem that allows you to perform a MSG to PDF conversion with just a few lines of code. First, install the ConvertAPI Ruby SDK:

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
