What is EML file?

Files with the .EML extension contain a single email stored in a single file comprised of the header of the message and its body, and possibly some attachments. This extension is used by many various email managing programs. The format was standardised in the RFC 2833 document.

A header of a message includes:

  • Email addresses of sender and receiver,
  • Subject of the message,
  • Date, time and place of origin – servers mediating reception of the message,
  • Additional information about the content, links and attachments.

The EML message files can be sent as attachments to other email messages. They can be opened in most email client programs. Such programs usually also enable storing messages in EML format on disc, for instance, for purpose of archiving.

Conversion of a EML file

When you install one of the applications from the list of programs that you found here, you should be able to open or edit the file with the EML extension without any issue. However, if you still have problems with this, you may use the option of EML file conversion to a different format.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the EML file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the EML file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the EML file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the EML file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the EML file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the EML file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
