    Never heard of EML until just now, so I did some research.

    Read the second post in this thread: EML Attachments

    Hope this helps!

    edit: Also, read the 3rd post. Unfortunately, EML is an unregistered file extension that Android cannot read.

    EML is a text file that is created by Outlook Express. There are some other email platforms out there that can read them (Thunderbird is one I know of, I guess there are others).

    Basically, someone sent you an email from OE, or they forwarded you an email that went through OE at some point. Thus creating the eml file.

    Hi

    You can open EML attachmnts from GMail or any other Android app by installing my free utility
    EML Reader FREE
    (you can find it in the market)
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.uglyicons.apps.android.emlreader

    It also parses the message letting you execute actions on addresses (add to contacts) and attachments (open, save, share). Inline images are also managed and shown.

    I'll really welcome criticisms, suggestions and feature requests.

    Cheers,
    Paolo
