.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.
