Feel free to link to any of my pagesMicrosoft Windows may not know that you want your Email program
(Mozilla's Thunderbird, in my case) to open Email messages that you saved as files.
If you double-click on your saved Email, and Windows tells you that it doesn't know
what program to use, you may use procedure.
I use the older, Classic Windows Start menu and the file suffix ".eml" for saved
Thunderbird Email messages. For example I might have saved an Email message as file:
"Dave here is your order.eml"
Select FILE TYPES
File Extension: eml (enter "eml" in Create New Extension popup box)
select SELECT THE PROGRAM FROM A LIST
scroll down the popup list of programs until you find your Email program
(click on MOZILLA THUNDERBIRD [in my case])
CLOSE (closes the Folder Options window)
