Finding messages on Backup

I’m looking for a specific message into a older emclient full backup but it shows only format “.dat” and “.xml”.

I d’like to know how to find eml files into backup zip file.

I know that if restore full backup is possible to see the messages, but I need only find some messages.

Is it possible?

No, it is not possible to extract individual messages from the zip file.

What you need to do is:

  1. Close eM Client, then rename the eM Client directory which you can find at C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming. You may need to enable hidden items in Windows Explorer to get there.

  2. Restart eM Client and cancel any setup windows.

  3. Disconnect from the Internet.

  4. Go to Menu > File > Restore and restore the backup where the messages are located.

  5. Find the messages and export them by right-click and Save As.

  6. Close eM Client and delete the C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\eM Client folder.

  7. Rename the folder you changed in step 1 back to eM Client.

  8. Reconnect to the Internet.

  9. Restart eM Client.

  10. Import the messages you saved in step 5, either by dragging them from Windows Explorer to a folder in eM Client, or using Menu > File > Import > Email.


Thank you! :slightly_smiling_face:
