    .eml files are email files that have usually been sent or received by a POP3 email application. This type of file generally associated with Outlook Express. You can try to open by Free File Viewer.

    You open them the same way almost any file is opened -- you call the open() API with appropriate parameters, most importantly passing the proper file name which might need a fully-qualified path.

    If you just want to see the content, you can open Notepad and drag/drop the file on the Notepad window. If you need it to be formatted, you can drop it on Outlook instead of Notepad. (You can also drop it it on Thunderbird. Other e-mail clients might work as well.)

    Moreover .EML files are very similar to .mhtml format & if you rename the file extension to .mht will quickly convert it into a compatible version that can be opened in internet explorer (windows). First take a copy of all .EMLs files and keep them in a safe place like another drive/removable media. Then you can rename them to .mht format. As you did not mention the OS name, if there is Mac, & has proper apple mail setup, double click the .EML to open the original email. This also gives you access to the attachments.
