Forwarding Emails

EML are the extension given to some email files.. The only reason you get these is either the user or the mail program they are using does not know how to properly forward messages (Netscape)..  I can open them OK on my computers, but we do not use Outlook Express, we use Tunderbird -
It is a real pain in the ass when people send things this way.. I hate having to open several EML files and maybe several jpg or gif files etc.... Aside from this it could be a way of hiding a virus in the message.. a bit scarry opening all these files! :-(   If I forward something, I always make sure it is in the "body" of the new message, so you never have this problem.. I have come to a time in my life where I am tired of trying to educate everyone.. Life is just too short and I have a lot of other better things to do with my time, especially considering how few appreciate the help.. :-)
That being said, you are not the only one having problems with this.. A simple search on Google ( gave me a lot of results. Check these out and hopefully you will find a solution to your problem.

Question: I get attachments in my e-mail but I can't seem to open them.

Answer: This is because it's an email, wrapped in an email, wrapped in an email. This is usually caused by people who use Netscape. You need to configure your system to open .EML files.

To do this:
- Double Click on My Computer.
- Click on Tools, then Folder Options.
- Click on the File Types tab. It may take a few seconds for your computer to respond
   since it's looking at all the file types in your registry.
- Click on the New button. Type in .EML and click the OK button. If it warns you that 
   the file is already associated with it and you should unregister it, go ahead and click OK.
- Next scroll down the alphabetic list of the file types and you should see EML there.
- Click on the EML entry and below it, under the section marked Opens With: Click on
   the CHANGE button.
- You should then get an error message that the association does not exist. Now click on
   the button for select a program from the list, and click the OK button.

The list should contain programs and may show outlook express in that list. If it does, simply choose it by clicking on it and then click the OK button.

If the list does not contain Outlook Express, click on the Browse button and then search 
to C:\Program Files\Outlook Express and click on the file called MSIMN and click the OK button. Some versions of Windows, the OK button says OPEN.
