Search on EML files.


I have doing a legal search and I have a lot of EML files.  

Currently, I am opening it up one by one in Outlook.  

Anyone knows a tool I could use or purchase to "ingest" the EML files so I can do search for phases or strings?

Please advise.

Windows search should be able to search for text within files as long as indexing is turned on.
I have not personally tried .eml files but I know you can add additional file formats outside the normal .txt etc.
