I have received a number of emails with attachments on them. The attachments show as eml files, but I can't open them. What programme opens them.. Any help appreciated.

EML is Outlook Express Mail. What email client are you using?

Hi, I'm not sure what you mean by email client. I am running microsoft Internet explorer 5.

The eml files have a small black icon like a word file, and Word tries to open them, but comes up with a file conversion screen about encoding and choosing whether to use plain text . Part of the message is readable and part comes in a series of codes. Some of the files I receive are cartoons or photos
and I have tried photoshop and a few other programmes but no luck.

Thanks for your help.
