How to open emails in Finder


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?


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