How To Open Outlook Express Messages
.Dear Computer Lady,
When I had XP and Outlook Express I saved some of my eml files because I wanted to make sure I would keep them.
When I had to buy a new computer with Windows 7 it no longer uses Outlook Express and I have to use an online mailbox. I use gmail.
Now I have file folders of saved eml files that I cannot view. Is there any way to access the files, is there a program that will let me see them?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a program that can open your saved email messages, Windows Live Mail.
You can download Windows Live Mail, free of charge from Microsoft. Just search for Windows Essentials.
Once you have downloaded and installed Windows Live Mail, you will be able to open any of your saved emails by double clicking on them.
