Windows 7: Move .EML files to Outlook 2010 Folder?

23 Aug 2013   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise (64-bit)
Move .EML files to Outlook 2010 Folder?

I was forwarded a bunch of attached .EML files which are email messages. However, I'd like to drag all of these to a specific folder, but I cannot because Microsoft Outlook 2010 doesn't know what it is when I do that.

I can easily double click on the .EML message itself and it open with Outlook 2010, but dragging it to a folder doesn't work the way I expect.

Can someone assist me with this? Trying to avoid downloading software I'm not familiar or comfortable with.

That behaviour is correct.

Unfortunately this isn't an easy thing to solve - one option is to Export the .eml files from Windows Live Mail using the "Exchange Server" setting. Another is to use this free utility - its supposed to work without any problems, but I've nevr actually used it:

Outlook Freeware - Import Messages from EML Format

Let us know how you get on.
