When an Outlook Express (EML) file is extracted to disk, its message text and header information (
Sent, and so on) are extracted to a text file. (If you do not want the header information to appear in the text file, see Exclude Metadata from the Extracted Text File.) If the Outlook Express file contains a non-mail attachment, the attachment is extracted in its native format to the same directory as the message text file. If the Outlook Express file contains a mail attachment, the complete attachment (including message text and attachments), the message text file, and non-mail attachment(s) are extracted to the same directory as the main message.
When the MBX reader (
mbxsr) is enabled, it is used to filter MBX and EML files. If the MBX reader is not enabled, the EML reader (
emlsr) is used.
