If EML files will not open in Outlook Express, try the following:

1. Open My Computer.
2. Select Folder Options from the Tools menu.
3. Click the File Types tab.
4. Under Registered file types, select EML Outlook Express Mail Message, then click Advanced.
5. Click Open, then click Edit.
6. Type the following line in the "Application used to perform action" box: "C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\MSIMN.EXE" /eml:%1
7. Click OK twice, then close the window.

EML files may also be opened in Internet Explorer since they are formatted the same as .MHT files. Changing the file extension from ".eml" to ".mht" should cause the file to open directly in Internet Explorer.

"eml" files are e-mails. The issue is that Windows 7 does not include an e-mail client, so there's no built-in program to view those files.

You can download and install Windows Live Mail as WR2 suggested, or other e-mail clients such as Thunderbird will also work.
