Can't Open .eml file!

I have installed Windows Mail into Win 7. But I cannot open any .eml files. That extension is not included in my file associations options. And Windows Mail is not offerred as a default email program. How can I make these things happen?

Are you talking about Windows Mail or Windows Live Mail? If the former, download WLM. It is the newest version and should solve your problem.

Save all your important email then go to this site and download the newest version.




Essentials - Windows Live

I think that you are having the problem because you do not have the newest version of Mail, for windows 7

Is there an update available for Windows Mail? I'm talking about the version that came in Vista, not some new permutation. I would very much like to stick to Windows Mail (Vista version), but I also want to be able to open an .eml file. Any help out there?

I found these posts. I cannot recommend anything that is stated, I have not tried it. But it may help. Give it a read and decide.

You will need to download "Windows Live Email". There is no update on Windows 7 for "Windows Mail" (from Vista). you can then choose to open .eml with --->
Windows Live Mail E-Mail Message (.eml). Set it as 'default'

i am also trying

Isn't that guy who teaches us how to bring in the window mail from Vista to be used in windows 7 rather smart?

At the moment, when you click the eml file in your windows explorer, a menu with 'open with' will appear, only by clicking windows live mail, will enable you to preview your email saved in your windows explorer.
Alternatively, windows 7 has an obscure icon on the top right corner of the explorer menu that lets you preview your files, so you needn't open any program to read your saved emails.
hope it helps.
