How to open emails in Finder

Michael,

Long time very satisfied SpamSieve user here.

I am now playing around with EagleFiler to archive my emails from Outlook exchange. Everything works well in EF itself. But I was looking forward to being able to open the emails via the finder as well. But when I open an In or Sent box I just get a long unfiltered raw text in TextEdit sometimes with long passages of encoded images etc that seems to contain all the messages but is basically not very useful. I have imported a group of selected messages from Outlook by using the F1 key. They do show up correctly as separate messages when opened in EF. Is there a way I can see them without EF but directly from the finder?

Thanks!

Please see this discussion about Mailbox (mbox) vs. Individual Message (.eml) Files. It sounds like you would prefer the latter.
