    Windows Live Mail...Will Not Open *.EMLs

    hello...

    as the thread title states...it's that simple...Windows Live Mail will not open *.eml files....(...&...I could have sworn that it used to...am I wrong...???)

    I normally get these types of files from family members...whereby the *.eml is an attachment (I believe) that is an e-mail from whatever utility they are using (outlook express, aol mail, etc.)

    how can I open these to read the contents...???

    thanx,

    I haven't tried opening .eml files in Live Mail. I don't have a clue how to do so, but I know that Outlook won't open them. My department uses Outlook, but there are a few MAC users who use Entourage. When they save emails on the network drive, they save them as .eml or .txt files. I use my browser (IE or Firefox) to open the .eml files, but not a program in my browser.
