One of the things that eM client is attractive to me is due to its ability to use “Save As” to save emails in eml format using any name that I choose into any folder on my computer.
This function used to available for all “Save As” menus whether within the opened email. But now, if I don’t open the mail and just stay on the main screen listing out the emails, if I right click into “Save As” or press “Control S”, I can no longer type in the name of email to be saved. Instead, a folder selection menu pops up in which I can only select the “Folder” into which save the email and the I cannot choose to name file. It is automatically given a time stamped name.
I would like to have the ability to name the .eml file myself. The Folder selection option is not necessary as I can navigate to the folder in which I want to store my email.
Is it possible to use all “Save As” so that I can choose to input my own file name? this used to be the case, but is changed in update versions of the software.
I think your issue is connected to Conversations view. When you use the Ctrl+S or Save as option on a list item which includes more messages in the Conversation, you only get the Folder choice (since the Save as menu only allows for one text field for a file name and you’d for example need to name 5 items).
Clicking on the separate message inside the conversation will still give you the Naming option, because you are only saving one file at a time.
Thanks Olivia for your quick response. Great tech support.
Uust as you advised, the issue is with Conversations View. In the “settings” -> “Mail” -> “Read”, as long as I don’t choose the “Show conversations in all views” in the radio buttons and choose instead either “Disable conversation” or “Show conversations in message detail only”, then Control+S or Save As allows me to save in eml format.
If I choose the “Show conversations in all views”, then even if only one message in the conversation is highlighted, I still only get the Folder choice.
