I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just double click on the message, go up to the Orb -> Save -> Save As and under the file type choose Text .txt .

This is the same as EML format, you can just change the file extension from .txt to .eml

Hello jrsitman,

If using Windows XP, you can import emails from Outlook to Outlook Express.  Then select an email and save as an eml file. Go to File > Save.

If using Vista, you can import emails from Outlook to Windows Mail.  Windows Mail keeps emails in .eml format.

You can use a third party program like OutlookSpiller to export Outlook to .eml format

Hope this helps!
