How To Save Emails as EML files from Windows Live Hotmail

Emails are accessible through Windows Live Hotmail. If you need to have an email file stored locally, you can export the message into EML file. This way all email fields will be in the file, not just the body. Here is how to do this:

  • While you are inside the client, go into the email you’d like to save
  • Click the arrow near Reply button in the header
  • Choose View message source in the list of options that pops up (otherwise select such option from the right-click menu)
  • Select all text in the message source (pressing Ctrl-A), then copy it (Ctrl-C).
  • Click on Save As option in the File browser menu, choose EML format and give the file proper name (for instance, [subject].eml)
  • Check file extension – it should be .eml, if your browser supports saving files as EML.
  • Choose proper location for the file and press Save.

Some of web browsers do not allow saving directly to EML format, and in this case you should simply paste the text into a new file in some plain text editor (Notebad, TextEdit, etc.). To do this, after copying text from email source press Ctrl-V in the editor. Then save the file with .eml extension (just type [filename].eml in the file name field).
