EmlViewer Pro makes email metadata accessible, including internet transport header information embedded within an email message. This information is often hard or impossible to access in a standard email client.
Email transport header data and properties data is useful for verifying the authenticity of an email message. It can show the server path that the message took on it’s way to the destination inbox. Note that if the .eml file you are looking at was created locally, there will be no transport header; only emails that have traversed the internet will contain transport header information.
To access transport header details for a .eml file, first open the message in EmlViewer Pro, then go to Mail>Properties.
.Eml file properties view.
The Mail Information window appears. You can select among three different tabs. The first shows the general email information, including facts such as Subject, From, to, CC:, BCC:, delivery time, the time the message was sent (or submitted), etc.
General information tab
To view the transport header information, simply click the tab in EmlViewer Pro called, Transport Header. You’ll be able to see all of the data, including the Return-path info, dates, and message-ID information.
Eml File Transport Header Information
Every .eml file will contain properties that are not readily accessible to normal email users. In a forensic investigation, these properties can be useful and revealing. With EmlViewer Pro, the Properties Tree tab will provide full access these properties. You can navigate the entire properties tree with simple clicks, and view their values.
Email messages are often stored or archived as individual EML files. They contain the email message, sender and receiver information, the internet header data, and any file attachments that were appended to the message.
What if you have a directory filled with hundreds or thousands of EML files and you want to save a copy of all email file attachments to a folder on your hard drive?
One way to do it would be to open each .eml file individually, and extract the attachments manually. This labor intensive method doesn’t appeal to me, and probably not to you (or you wouldn’t be reading this article).
A faster and much more efficient method to bulk extract file attachments from EML files would be to use the “Only Attachments” export operation found in EML Viewer Pro email viewer (download a free 15 day trial).
EML Viewer Pro is a viewer for email content including EML, MSG, PST, OST and MHT files. In addition to accurately rendering your emails, it allows you to perform useful tasks, such as searching, print, exporting to PDF and other formats, and even Reply and Forward our .eml email messages.
To extract file attachments from EML files with EML Viewer Pro, start the software and select the folder containing your .eml files.
In the email list, type CTRL-A to select all of the files.
Select “Only Attachments” from the Export Profile setting, and click the Export Button to start the process (the export button is the green down arrow).
Select “Only Attachments” and click the Export button
When the operation completes, EML Viewer Pro will have saved a copy of all email file attachments to the folder you selected. You can see your email file attachments, and open them up for viewing, printing or editing in the appropriate software. Note that the original .eml file remains intact and are unchanged; only a copy of the file attachments have been saved to your folder.
We’ve also created this step by step video to show you exactly how to use EML Viewer Pro to bulk extract file attachments from your .eml files.
