The files come with a header with two email addresses: one for a recipient and one for the sender, hyperlinks and body attachments of the email. The file format for EML is standardized to go with MIME RFC 822 to help you open some email databases like Thunderbird, Outlook Express, Outlook, IncrediMail, Microsoft Entourage and Apple Mail. Here are some EML file extensions: P10, Vcf, Emlx, Mailhost, wdseml, Tbb eml., Pst., Mlm, Mso., Mht, Oas, Mbox, Vcard., Mlm, Sbd, eml. Boe, Tnf, pmx.
