Definition and description of a .msg file?

I routinely save Outlook messages on my hard drive. When I go to save a message, I save it as an 'Outlook Message Format' type when I am prompted to select a type. Does this mean I am saving as a .msg file? What exactly is a .msg file? What type of email, when saved from Outlook does a .msg file refer to?
