How to Bulk Print E-Mail Messages

So you need to print out a bunch of emails? You’ve come to the right place. This article will discuss serveral ways to bulk print email messages.

Printing From Your Email Client

Most email clients provide a method to print multiple email messages.  In Microsoft Office Outlook, for example, bulk printing emails is as easy as selecting multiple mails from the list, right clicking on the list and then choosing “Quick Print.”

Most email clients have this ability, or something similar. It’s possible your situation may be more complex.  For example, what if you are a legal secretary tasked with printing out emails involved in a legal case, and the messages you received in discovery are in different formats, and not viewable in your email client software?

Printing Emails Using an Email Viewer

Quality email viewing software can open email messages that are stored in many different formats, including Outlook .pst or .ost files, individual emails saved as .msg or .eml files, .mbox, or winmail.dat files.  Using an email viewer like Encryptomatic LLC’s PstViewer Pro can be an easy way to gain quick access to emails without the need install multiple email clients on your computer.

How can I open a .eml file?

Are you wondering how to open .eml files?   .Eml files are self-contained email message files that were generated by Microsoft Outlook Express, Lotus Notes or Thunderbird email clients. The format of a .eml file is technically defined in the specifications RFC-822 and RFC-2822.

.EML files can be examined using a text editor, although many parts of the message are encoded and will not be visible. Binary file attachments, for example, are rendered as text strings. The only way to view the entire email message in its original formatting is to view it in an email client, or in a specialized .eml file viewing application.

If you would rather not install a full email client on your computer just for occasional .eml file viewing, or if you have thousands of .eml files and you don’t want to open them individually, a better way may be to install a .eml file viewer that lets you search, print and convert .eml files to different formats.   Encryptomatic LLC is a software developer of professional EML Viewer software for Windows.
