How to save and attach emails as .eml files
Front allows you to save a single message as an .eml file or attach it to an email you’re sending out. This is a common workflow in Outlook that is also supported in Front.
It’s not possible to view .eml attachments in Front, so you will need to open and view them in Outlook or a text editor app.
Click the message options menu in the top right corner of the message. Select Save email.
Save the file. The file name will default to the subject line of the email, with special characters removed. Your download options depend on whether you're using Front on the web or in the desktop app:
- Web: Your file automatically saves to wherever you have it set up in your browser settings (like your Downloads folder)
- Desktop app: You will get the “Save As” prompt where you can rename the file and choose your download location
You will see your .eml file in your chosen location. You can attach it to a message via drag-and-drop or with the attachment file picker.
