mesage is incorrect as the word has never changed the spelling from the French origin. Message is the only correct form.
Definition of message:
noun, a piece of communication left or sent for example by mail; also: a crucial idea behind a piece of art, for example, film or painting
I won’t be home at 10 but you can leave me a message on the desk.
What was the message behind his speech? It was very strange in my opinion.
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
mesage is incorrect because it misses one s, as the word was taken directly from the French message, which comes from Latin missus. Therefore message is the correct spelling.
