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.
From the “Edit Profile” page you can adjust, select and change any of the options that are associated with the selected EmlViewer Pro export profile.
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.
This starts the “New Export Profile” wizard. Just follow along and make the choices that will best fit your project.
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.
Please reach out to our support team with any questions you may have about customizing EmlViewer Pro to your specific needs.
When it comes to convert .eml files, the EML Viewer Pro email reader provides a tremendous amount of flexibility to it’s users through Export Profiles. It is best to think of export profiles as editable instruction sets that tell EML Viewer Pro how it should perform the conversion and exportation of selected email messages.
EML Viewer Pro ships with more than 25 pre-configured export profiles. Any of these profiles can be edited to your specific needs, or you can build completely new export profiles.
If you don’t yet have EML Viewer Pro installed on your Windows computer, you can download a free trial from the EML Viewer Pro home page and follow along with this lesson. Export profiles are easy accessible from the EML Viewer Pro (also known as Pst Viewer Pro) software main toolbar. Individual profiles are selected from the drop down list.

EML Viewer Pro Export Profile Wizard
In the first step, enter a name for your profile. You may want to give it a name that is meaningful so that you’ll recognize it from the profile drop down list. In our example today, I’m going to give it the name “My New Profile,” and choose a PDF target format. Click next to advance the wizard.
Select The Desired Conversion Format
In step 2, you can select a specific folder to export messages to, or you can tell EML Viewer Pro to always put the files it creates into a zip archive. Click the finish button to complete the wizard.
Select The Target Destination
When the wizard has completed, look at the export profile drop down list. You should see your new profile listed.
Just for fun, let’s edit this profile and make some deeper changes to it. First, select your new profile from the drop down list, and then click the “Edit” button. The Edit Button is the icon that looks like a piece of paper with a pencil.

Let’s examine some of the options that we can select from.
There are about 30 different pre-configured page sizes that you can export to. Page size will impact the page size of printing or PDF exports. Page sizes can be specific to an export profile. You can also specify a custom page width and height, as well as the orientation (landscape or portrait).
A setting for ISO 190005-1 PDF/A is also included in this area; use PDF/A when you want to archive .eml files for long term preservation.
30 different page sizes are available.
Grouping Exported Files Eml Viewer Pro provides options for grouping and naming the exported files. While exporting to PDF, you can tell EML Viewer Pro to export emails into one large single pdf file, or into separate pdf files.
Each exported file that EML Viewer Pro creates may be given a name that is based on your custom scheme. For example, you can place parts of the email content into the file name, such as the sender, the date received, or even an incremented number. To customize file naming, click on the expansion button on the “File naming schema” field to open the editor, and arrange the naming plan in the manner that is best suited to your project.
