Re: [Evolution-hackers] Viewer for file-stored E-Mails

2008-12-22 Thread Michael Städler
Hi Pat and Reid,

thanks for the quick response. You see, it is clear to me, that both, eml and 
mbox, are flat file. What I am looking is a viewer, who can view this in a 
accurate manner, not like a flat file editor. The hint to mutt is a good one. 
If I can't find another - graphical - viewer, then I will go with mutt.

  As you probably know, the mbox format is flat text. For casual reading 
  and searching you can use pretty much any text editor. However, I know 
  that's not what you're asking for.
  
  I don't know of any desktop program that views mbox files, but mutt on 
  the command line will do it with the -f switch.

 ... can't you use your file explorer to associate .eml files with the
 viewer of 
 your choice?

[Evolution-hackers] Viewer for file-stored E-Mails

Hi,

I usually store important E-Mails one-by-one in files, thus I can backup
these information easily. I am in the process of switching from
Windows/Outlook to Linux/Evolution. In Evolution the only Save as

just by selecting them in a file explorer. Am I missing something? I
