How Can I Convert EML Files to PDF?

There is no other file format as convenient as PDF for archiving and sharing EML email files.   It seems like a simple thing to do, but in practice you may discover that converting .Eml to .Pdf can be anything but convenient.  It’s easy to forget how complex email documents like .eml files can be.

Eml files can be formatted in text or HTML.  They may have different kinds of email file attachments.  In fact, Eml files can be attached to other .eml files — how do you handle emails inside of emails?

If you are converting many .eml files to .pdf, you want to give the files a special name.  Or, perhaps you need to combine multiple .eml files into one .pdf file.

If your project calls for converting more than a few .eml files to .pdf, you will want to try EmlVeiwer Pro (also known as PstViewer Pro), a Windows software tool that is specifically designed to convert email from .Eml files and other formats to .PDF, and able to accommodate the many different situations and preferences that your project will encounter.

How to Build Custom Email Export Profiles

.eml Email export profiles.

EmlViewer Pro (also known as PstViewer Pro) is a Windows email viewer. You can use it to discover and export .eml emails to to PDF and many other formats.

EmlViewer Pro lets you make your own email export profiles. What is an export profile? Its a pre-set instruction that tells EmlViewer Pro exactly what to do with the emails you have chosen.

EmlViewer Pro comes with many pre-built export profiles. You’ll find them in the export tab drop down list.

You can edit any of these export profiles and add more features, such as naming files, copying files, setting page size, export format and much more.

To make changes to an export profile, just select it and click the “Edit Profile” button.

Editing existing profiles is good, but if you’re ready to take it to the next level, you can design completely new email export profiles by clicking the “New Profile” button.

EmlViewer Pro gives you many options. If you’re satisfied with the “out of the box” email export options (and many people are), then there’s no need to make profile changes. However, if you think that EmlViewer Pro would be a little bit better if an export profile could do a few more things, then investigating the profile settings could be exactly what you need to get the job done perfectly.
