A long standing headache of email has been when people forward email from Outlook/Exchange and they show up as .EML attachments on your end. Unless you had a licensed copy of Outlook installed, it was nigh impossible to open and read that format.
Today, I downloaded an EML file, and was happily surprised to find that Mail.app on Mojave could read and manage this file with no issues.
This may be a small thing for most, and I might have overlooked the capability before, but I’m thinking this may be a recent addition to Mail?
Just thought I’d mention it, if others have had the same problems with this file type.
I was definitely able to open EML files on High Sierra, our Ticket system at work attaches all emails sent regarding a ticket to it, and it’s quite useful to be able to see why things are formatted weirdly when that happens! I think this was working on Sierra too.
Come to think of it, I might be confusing EML with the “Winmail.dat” attachments. I used to have the “Letter Opener” app for these.
Still happy to be able to read EML though
I think that’s possible, every so often one of those pops up here and it causes havoc
Yeah, .eml is the default format for mail.app. You’re thinking of either the winmail.dat file or outlook’s default format of .msg (which Mail.app still cant read).
