MSG and EML files are essentially emails in file form, created or saved from Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express and may contain attachments, one or more email fields, message body, or contact information, appointment details, and one or more task descriptions. In Microsoft Outlook, you can create an MSG file by simply dragging and dropping a message, appointment, contact, or task item to a folder in Windows Explorer. Generally, many companies use MSG and EML files for archival or as part of their email-retention policy.

File to PDF can take MSG or EML files from your Windows folder and convert to PDF along with its attachments (if any) for easy sharing or archiving. You don’t even need to open the MSG or EML in Microsoft Outlook.

By default, the app will automatically convert the attachments (if any) to their own PDF files, apart from the email itself. So effectively, you will have one PDF for the email and as many PDF files for that many number of attachments in that email.  However, you can change this preference (in Settings) to combine all attachments (if any) and the email itself to one single PDF file.
