Problem openingcopied .eml docs in Outlook Express

  jaybon 12:40 06 Jan 2011

I have copies of some emails [ recieved in Outlook Express ] copied to MY DOCS.

After using Windows Live Mail - these copies only open in WLM.

I tried to correct this by using "open in " and setting this for Outlook express.

The result is the attempting to open a copied e mail from My Docs causes Outlook Express to open but not the copy e mail

How can I get my email copies to open in OE ?

Try this - if the WLM messages (you need to open in OE) have a .eml extension, create a copy of them to another part of your hard drive. Then open OE & drag + drop them (the copies) into your OE's Inbox or other OE subfolder. G

They are indeed .eml files - from your title! Sorry, just spotted that! G
