1) What do you mean by "put file extension in the heading"? I would expect to see an extension at the end of the file name in Windows Explorer, but only if the view options have been changed to uncheck "hide extensions for known file types". If you look at the properties the filename should show the extension if it has one. If not, how do you even know it's an email file? If you change the view option does it show up as an eml file in Explorer? Perhaps there is no email program installed in Windows 7.
2) Did you or someone install the Vista email program "Windows Mail" on your Windows 7 PCs or did you mean to say "Windows Live Mail" which would have been part of the suite of programs called "Windows Live Essentials". Either way, Windows 7 did not come with an email program so one would have to have been installed separately in order to open email (.eml) files.
