New post

    Hi Kamran, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    EML files are not supported by Box preview. You may check on this link, https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043695794-Viewing-Different-File-Types-Supported-in-Box-Content-Preview for the list of file types supported by Box content preview.

    If this is something you would like to be able to do, I would highly recommend submitting this feature request at pulse.box.com ! Our product managers review these requests and take them into consideration for future product development.

    Thanks for your participation in the forum!

    Just adding a note/question for clarity. The Box for Outlook plug-in is a great tool as far as ease and access! What doesn't make sense is the discrepancy that the Box plug-in's format for saving an email is .eml when an .msg file seems to be more native inside Box. Looking at the pulse page, users are asking for a previewer for .eml files. I think the obvious question would be, can the plug-in save in a format that works natively inside Box?
