XML files store data in the form of hierarchical elements. XML files can be read by computer and the information easily integrated into a computer application or database. If you’re reading this, you arrived here for a reason and we scarcely need to tell what an XML file is, so let’s get right into the “How.”

MailDex by Encryptomatic LLC is a Windows application that makes it easy to convert eml formatted emails into machine readable xml files. MailDex can convert a single email to XML, or even a folder with thousands of email messages.

The first step is to install the MailDex free trial, then create a “Project” to contain your .eml or other emails. You can have as many projects as necessary, and you can put as many emails into a project as you want. MailDex supports many different email file formats, including Outlook PST, OST, MSG, and also MBOX, EML, EMLX and MHTML files.

The next step, following the indexing of your emails, is to search to create a set of emails that you want to export to XML format. Exporting to XML is as easy as choosing “XML” from the “Export” tab drop down list.

Exporting EML emails to XML files.

Click the “Export” button and MailDex begins the process of converting emails into XML documents. Within minutes, you’ll have a folder containing your XML files, and you can do with them what you please.
