.Eml Converter: How to Convert .Eml Emails to Different File Formats

.Eml Email files represented as envelopes.

.Eml files are individual emails that have been saved outside of an email client like Thunderbird.  Eml files contain messages, and email meta data including the date, sender, recipient, and file attachments. While it’s not difficult to open a single .eml file in an email client, it can be a challenge to convert and search multiple .eml files.

EmlViewer Pro (also known as PstViewer Pro) is a windows software app capable of viewing and bulk searching .eml files. It’s capable of reading a directory of hundreds or thousands of .eml file. Emails that have been previously stored in a recursive folder structure can be organized into a single mail list for filtering and search.

EmlViewer Pro converts .eml files to different useful formats. Save as PDF, txt, html, jpg, and more.
