EML to CSV: Bulk Convert .EML Email Files To a List

Screen shot showing CSV selected a export format.

Professionals who regularly work with E-Mail understand the importance of being able to batch convert a large number of .eml email files to a text format. Whether you need an easily searchable text version of E-Mails, or if you just need to capture basic E-Mail header information in a text format,  EmlViewer Pro can help. This capability is included with every copy of EmlViewer Pro.

How to Convert .Eml to CSV

To follow along with this tutorial, download a free trial of EmlViewer Pro. The trial will allow you to export up to 50 E-Mails per export operation.  This restriction is of course removed from the registered version of the software.

When EmlViewer Pro first starts, use the folder explorer on your left hand side to select the folder where your .eml files are stored.  EmlViewer Pro will then read those E-Mail files into an organized list.

If you want to convert all of the E-Mails in the list to .csv/text, you can select them all for export by typing Ctrol-A.  Selected E-Mails will be highlighted in blue.

Exporting .eml into .csv format lets you then import E-Mails into Microsoft Excel.

Next select the Export tab.
From the drop down list, choose the CSV export profile, as shown in the image below.

The last step is to click the “Export” button to begin the operation.  EmlViewer Pro will proceed with saving the select .eml E-Mails into a text-based Comma Separated Values (CSV) file. The .CSV file will be written to a folder location that you indicate.

Clicking on the .CSV file will cause it to open in your default spreadsheet application. In the image below, the CSV file has been opened in Microsoft Office Excel 2013.

The E-Mail content has now been organized into columns that include the following fields:
From, Subject, Date, To, CC, Message Body, file attachment information, and a link to the original .eml file.

These columns can re-arranged or deleted, searched or otherwise manipulated.

While the trial version of EmlViewer Pro restricts export operations to 50 E-Mails, there is no limited to the number of .Eml files that may be converted to .CSV in the registered version.

How to Archive .EML Emails as PNG Image Files

Files with the .eml extension are RFC-822 formatted email messages. EML Viewer Pro is a tool for managing eml files, and converting them to different formats, including image files like PNG, GIF, TIF and BMP. 


Today’s tutorial will show you how to use EML Viewer Pro to convert a html email message into a PNG file.  Download and install the 15 day free trial of EML Viewer Pro so you can follow along.

EML Viewer Pro can display your .eml and .msg email files in a list.  It’s easy to scroll through this list and browse your emails. You can also search your emails and display those that meet your specified criteria, such as a date range, from a certain sender, or emails that match a search query.

In our example, I have a html formatted .eml file that contains an advertisement from a computer sales company. Selecting the message from EML Viewer Pro’s message list causes the email to display.

To export this message to PNG format, I simply select the PNG export file from the drop down list in the toolbar. It is possible to select many .eml files for conversion (type Ctrol-A to select all emails in the list).  To start the export operation from eml to png, I click the export button.

The export button is the green down arrow that points to a yellow stack of paper (I drew a red arrow pointing to it in the above image).

The export operation will begin, and the email is formatted into a png file. The size of the png image file will vary with the length of the email.  In this example, you can see that the resulting PNG is quite long.  EML Viewer Pro has preserved the images and html formatting. The email header information is included in the top of the image.

Converting EML email files to PNG or other images are a good way to preserve emails for sharing or archiving. Because many html formatted emails have images that are hosted remotely, the contents of the email are not downloaded until the email is displayed. Saving the html email as a png file preserves a copy of the original message, and is not dependent upon the availability of a remote server.


EML Viewer Pro is a versatile tool that helps you transform your emails into many different formats. In addition to PNG, you can also format emails to pdf, csv (Excel), html, mhtml, and others. Download a free trial today and see what EML Viewer Pro can do for you.
