The easiest way is to use Outlook Express, even if you use another program for e-mail. OE comes free with Internet Explorer and is a stand-alone e-mail client.
Another way to view these files is to change the .EML extension to .TXT or .HTM. Double-click the file and you'll find the text you're seeking, although a bunch of computerese coding may be displayed above and/or below it.
Hope this helps

:D
