Unicode problem when exporting e-mails to EML files (accented characters are not shown properly)


Yesterday I started using eM Client and it’s a great piece of software.

One my favourite tools so far is the ability to export all your messages as EML files, keeping the same structure of folder and subfolders. However, there might be a Unicode problem, as accent characters (á, é, í, ó, ú) are not shown properly. I’ve opened the EML files with a couple of programmes (Office 365 and the notepad) and I get the same result.

I’m currently using eM Client 7.0.27943.0

I’d appreciate a solution.

Thank you and keep up the good work.

Hello David,
can you please send me one EML file with this issue as attachment to rust@emclient.com with a link to this forum thread in the body of the message?


I just did, Olivia: thank you for your quick reply.

I will mark this issue as not a problem, since the problem here was opening EML file in a program not designed to view such files.
The changes to the accented characters are made by the text editors (Notepad, Word).
Email client programs open the messages correctly.


Thank you, Olivia. I didn’t know I was trying to do something not expected. I understand now the special characteristics of the EML format and I will use a different tool to open the files.
