How to mass convert Filename.eml to Filename.msg while keeping them in original subdirectories?
Posted on 2004-04-28
Does anyone know of a utility that walks an explorer directory and subdirectory converting every .eml file into a .msg file?
My company has used Outlook express for 4 years, and we often copied emails to various Windows Explorer directories.
Each e-mail copied resulted in an .eml file like "Hey Santa, here is my xmas list.eml"
Find File .eml reveals that we have 3000 such files spread over 100 subdirectories.
We have converted to Outlook 2003, and everybodies e-mail Mailbox folders were converted.
But, the Windows Explorer folders still have the .eml files. Every time an .eml is opened, Outlook Express is invoked which confuses our people.
Does anyone know of a utlity that will convert these files. I have looked through slipstick, and found a utility that imports them into an outlook folder, but I want to leave them in their original folders.
I'm thinking of dragging the .eml files into an Outlook Express folder, converting that to outlook and dragging them into a explorer directory.BUT, how do I distribute the items back to their original 100 subdirectories?
