Display .eml file in browser

I am trying to pull binary from my sql which creates a .eml file which I can open in outlook no problem. I am looking to have it vieable within a browser some how.

Any suggesstions or free SDKs out there that will help with it.

Just need the .eml mime displayed in the web browser. If I could parse it I am sure it would be easier but having trouble parsing it as well.

I don't know (never looked for) free components to parse .eml.

But I am aware of this commercial product: http://www.aspose.com/.net/email-component.aspx 

But apparently, you can use CdoSys to parse them: http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/310224
From what I've found, an EML file is structurally equivalent to a MHT file.  You could output the file extension and MIME type of the document as MHT and it should display in a web browser.

The MIME type for both EML and MHT would be "message/rfc822".

 Mail_Message msg = Mail_Message.ParseFromFile(@"C:\Users\cgashlin.MORGANFINANCIA0\Desktop\{70FD9BE6-3B4E-4D07-BECA-C7F79A89C1E6}.eml");
            textBox2.Text = msg.Subject;
            //textBox3.Text = msg.BodyHtmlText;
            webBrowser1.DocumentText = msg.BodyHtmlText;
