EML to Word: How to Convert Email from .Eml to Microsoft Word .DOCx Format

Converting .eml emails to Word .docx files

E-mail messages can be very complex documents, complete with formatting, embedded images, special fonts and more.  When dealing with a lot of e-mail messages, there may be situations when you want to convert them in bulk to a format that is easier to edit, such as Microsoft Word. Converting an email that is already formatted can save you a lot of time, as you will not have to re-create the document from scratch.

EmlViewer Pro software by Encryptomatic LLC (also known as PstViewer Pro) makes it easy to convert .eml and .msg emails into Word .DOCx files.

You can download a free trial of EmlViewer Pro and follow along.

The steps are simple.

  1. First select the folder where you .eml or .msg emails are stored.
  2. When the .eml files are read into EmlViewer Pro, select one or messages in the list that you want to export to Word DOCx format.
  3. Next, go to the Export tab, and choose “Docx” from the list.
  4. Click Export.

Click one of the resulting .docx files and it will open in Microsoft Word. You are now free to edit, copy and markup a document that began as an email.

There is no limit to the number of .eml files you can convert.  The time required to convert the .eml file to a Word document depends on the formatting, and whether or not the e-mail contains hosted elements that must be downloaded, such as image files.
