Outlook express doesn't want to open EML / attachment files

posted on: 21:51, January 18th , 2010

Looked around before posting and others had this problem.
Outlook express opens when I double click on eml file but just launches the program (without showing the email itself opened)

Here's some solutions to this nasty issue:

Control Panel
Folder Options
File Types (tab)
Scroll down to EML File
Click the Restore (button)

Solution 2:

OLEXP: Unable to Open EML File Attachments in Outlook Express
(Fixing the EML File Association)
If the abbreviated command in the above article doesn't work,
then try: Start, Run and enter the following (with the quotation marks):
"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /reg
