    Running Vista Premium Home. Using Firefox. I can not open emails with
    eml attachments, it is all garbled when I click on the attachment. I
    have tired many things to solve the problem but unable to solve it. I
    have spent hours trying to solve the problem:mad:

    What do I need to do in order to be able to open these files?, the
    files are safe as they are from a friend

  2. The default application for opening EML files in Vista would be the
    Vista Windows Mail program (WM). If you've installed the Windows Live
    Mail (WLM) it can also open EML files.

    If you've set some other program to be the default application for EML
    files, then they won't make much sense to the program.

    EML files are also known as RFC822 files and are plain text files. You
    can open them in Notepad or another text editor, but if they use HTML or
    have attachments, they will be a message to look at.
