EML File Conversion into a CSV File Using PST Viewer Pro
.EML File Extension
EML, which stands for ‘E-mail’, is the file extension of the Outlook Express Saved Mail
Messages files. It belongs to the Microsoft range of e-mail management programs and is used for
saving e-mails for storage and forwarding purposes. EML is a file extension for an e-mail message
saved to a file in the MIME RFC 822 standard format by Microsoft Outlook Express as well as some
other email programs. Files that contain the .eml file extension are email files that have usually been
sent or received by a POP3 email application.
.CSV File Extension
CSV ("Comma Separated Value") file format is often used to exchange data between
disparate applications. The file format, as it is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a pseudo
standard throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms. A CSV file consists of any
number of records, separated by line breaks of some kind; each record consists of fields, separated
by some other character or string, most commonly a literal comma or tab.
Why do you need to convert an EML file into CSV?
CSV is a common, relatively simple file format that is widely supported by consumer,
business and scientific applications. One of its most common usage is moving tabular data between
programs that natively operate on incompatible (often proprietary and/or undocumented) formats.
This works because so many programs support some variation of CSV at least as an alternative
import/export format. For example, a user may need to transfer information from a database
program that stores data in a proprietary format, to a spreadsheet that uses a completely different
format. The database program most likely can export its data as "CSV"; the exported CSV file can
then be imported by the spreadsheet program.
1) To begin converting the EML file into CSV, start the program PST Viewer Pro. On the left
extreme right below the status bar and tools, you will find an explorer tree where you
choose the windows folder which contains the emails stored in .eml format (Not to mention
that PST Viewer Pro can also open .pst, .ost, .pst, winmail.dat, and even .mht files as well
and it’s a six viewer in one).
