Appending .EML Emails To An Existing .PDF File

Encryptomatic LLC, the developers of email viewing software, has released update 4.7 for both EML Viewer Pro and EML Viewer Lite.  These releases include PDF Append, a new pdf management feature for people who regularly need to save .eml files or other email file types to a single pdf file.

The PDF Append capability helps you convert an individual .eml file into a new or existing pdf file. This is a useful feature if you want to create a single pdf file that contains multiple email messages. One of the use-cases for PDF Append involved a legal assistant who was given the responsibility to collect specific email communications into a single pdf file.  Prior to this ability being added to EML Viewer Pro, she would export the messages individually and then use different software to merge the pdf documents into a single file, a process she found cumbersome and time consuming.

With PDF Append, she can now export these email messages to a new or existing pdf file. As the emails are discovered, she can append them to a single pdf document, with no need to run another software package.

To use this functionality, first start EML Viewer Pro or Lite and then select the folder containing your .eml files.  The software can also read .msg, .mht, .ost and Outlook .pst files.  Click on an email you want to export so it is highlighted in the mail list.  Now, click the +PDF button and enter a name for the file. The email message will be converted to PDF.

To add another email to the PDF file you just created, follow the same process, except select the pdf file you just created as the target.  The previous PDF file will be appended with your new email message.

EML Viewer Pro and Lite are very flexible email views. In addition to .eml files that are created by Outlook Express, Windows Mail and other email clients, they can also view and search Outlook .pst, .ost, and .msg files, and also .mht files. The PDF Append function works with all of the email formats supported by EML Viewer Pro and Lite.

Using EML Viewer Pro To Read .EML Files

A .eml file viewer will let you open email files created by applications like Winmail and Outlook Express. But what if you need to open other types of email files, such as Outlook .pst or .ost files or .msg files? Will you need to install three more software packages to be able to access the email stored within those files?

Now there is an email viewer available that allows able to manage multiple email formats while providing a single view across all of your different email content formats.

EML Viewer Pro by Encryptomatic LLC is an advanced email viewer. It is in use in many enterprise environments, and is available as a .msi installer package.  It is also easy enough to use that it can be used by small business and home users to manage their email.

EML Viewer Pro is also capable of reading not only .eml formatted email messages, but also Outlook .pst  and .ost files and .msg files. EML Viewer can display emails that are formatted as html, text or rich text files.  It can also convert all of these types of email formats into PDF files, including the file attachments.

All emails are not created equally. In fact, some are quite complex files. They can include html rich text, file attachments, and embedded pictures. One of the areas where email viewers often fall short is in dealing with OLE embedded objects within the email. Writing software code to handle these situations is very difficult and prone to errors, and as a result these objects are often not shown correctly, are inaccessible, and omitted during the rendering of the email.  PstViewer Pro excels at rendering these difficult emails, the product of years of experience and testing across millions of email.
