Converting .EML to .HTML Files

gold letter y on black background

A .eml file is an email message that has been saved as an individual file. Often email messages exist as a store containing hundreds or thousand of emails. This is the case with .pst, .ost, and .mbox email files, each of which contain many emails. The .Eml format was created to make it easy to exchange individual email files.

For archiving or exchange purposes, it may be convenient to convert .eml files into the widely accessible .html format. Converting .eml to .html allows anyone with a web browser to open and view an email message, and is a good way to ‘future proof’ access to emails.

PstViewer Pro (also known as EmlViewer Pro) is a Windows software tool that not only lets you view, organize, convert and print .eml files, but also lets you bulk convert .eml to .html files.

PstViewer Pro converts .eml emails into .html documents.

Converting .eml to .html with PstViewer Pro can be done in just a few steps:

  1. Load the .eml files into PstViewer Pro software.
  2. Choose “Export to HTML” from the “Export” tab
  3. Click the “Export” button

PstViewer Pro will convert the selected .eml files to .html files. Html files are saved in a folder that contains all of the image and other files needed to reassemble the email as a .html document.

Should you wish to have the email exported to a single file that is also compatible with web browsers, then choose the .MHT file export option. Mht files are single files that contain all of the images and html code, and are easier to manage for that reason.

Search and View EML Files with EML Viewer Pro

.Eml files are created by popular email client software such as Thunderbird, Windows Mail, and Outlook Express.  These files are compatible with a published internet standard called RFC-822. When an email message is stored outside of the email client, it’s often stored as a .eml file containing the message, sender and receiver information, and file attachments.

EML Viewer Pro is a full featured Windows software tool for managing folders containing hundreds or thousands of .eml files. It reads in the .eml emails and displays them in a sortable mail list. You can search emails for matching text, and even export the messages to pdf, csv, mbox and other formats.

The first step is to enter the text in the search box.  EML Viewer Pro will find any emails that match your search.

Next, select the emails in the list that you want to export to PDF. Type Control-A to select all emails in the list.

Lastly, choose the target export format from the drop down list and then click the Export button to start the operation.  EML Viewer Pro will go to work saving your .eml files to .pdf.

An important consideration when exporting .eml files is deciding how to handle the file attachments. Since file attachments can be the most important part of an email message,  EML Viewer Pro contains several options for you to choose from.  For example, you can choose to have the files extracted from the email.  Attachments can also be embedded within the pdf as individual files that can be extracted later using any pdf viewer.   Lastly, you can have EML Viewer Pro convert the file attachments into the pdf image.
