    I have Windows 7, Home Premium 64 bit, and I have used Windows Live Mail for about 6 months at which time it stopped opening eml file attachments or maybe I just received my first eml file and the others that opened were a different format. What are my options? I have just became a member to seek information on this problem. I may need further help on how to use this forum, My search found others with this problem, but no solution. If Live Mail can't be used, what is the best e-mail program that will work with Windows 7, 64 bit? Thanks. Don

    Go to Control Panel | Programs | Default Programs | Associate a file type or protocol with a program. Make sure .eml files are associated with Live Mail.

    If you would like to try another email program similar to Outlook Express try Mozilla Thunderbird. Have been using since the days of Windows XP and I highly recommend it.

    Thanks. I will look into it, if I can't solve this problem in Live Mail.

    Looked like a solution, but Live Mail was not offered as a choice.

    Then "browse" and navigate to C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail and select wlmail.exe. Note: if you are running a 64-bit OS you need to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Mail.

    Looked even more promising as a solution, but after doing it, nothing happened. Not even the html source code I got with wordpad. I do appreciate your attempts to help.

    Are the .eml files now associated with Windows Live Mail?
