    Hi All.......

    When I save important emails in my files on the computer I simply drag and drop them into a folder from the sent emails folder.
    This is great as viewing them again is just opening the file and up it pops in its own window.
    Unfortunately a rogue file type has appeared in the form of [._EML] even though I am doing exactly the same process.
    To open this file it references back to the sent emails folder which by then I have cleared so I can't read the original email........aarrrrrgggg !

    It only happens to a very few emails. Has anyone any idea why its happening and how to stop it ??

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Iain
