Linux: Reading EML Files

Thursday, 05. December 2019

Viewing or even printing your emails is fairly straight forward, but when you want to quickly view it is highly likely you would save the file to your hard drive, especially if it is a large document.

When you open the file (most people in their 1st attempt would use some type of text editor) you would see the above special embedded text. It's still readable but kind of messy (I'm using the ```markdown to assist in creating this post).

Easy Solutions to Simple (Annoying) Problems

The quickest and fastest way is to use a Chrome Type Browser!

In your file manager, just right click on the EML file then open it with your chrome browser (BRAVE in my case). I tried this with Firefox, didn't work.

    Hi to you, one of our confirmed Volunteers for the Worlds Big Sleep Out /
Santa@Sunset event on December 7th. 
    The World’s Big Sleep Out internationally is starting to grow with more
and more people from the entertainment world adding messages and time to
perform in their respective locations: 

    Helen Mirren, Will Smith, Chis Martin, Randy Jackson, The Script, Frank
Turner, Tom Walker, Travis, Seth Green, The Hairy Bikers,…… and more.
We have Richard Taylor (WETA Workshop), satelliting in the guys from
So3Mio, Nathan King (ZED), Kara Gordon and a list of over 120 artist here
in the Hutt. 

    We are over the moon with the response we have had and have an eclectic
ensemble that would without exception be unique in every sense.

Much easier to read!

Let's not forget the alternatives

  • download an EML viewer/editor
  • in your email client, copy and paste into a blank text document
  • if the EML is small, just read as is!
Once opened with the browser, this becomes the default action for all subsequent double clicking on this filetype EML in your file manager.
