I found that these instructions to be very helpful
For the love of command line tools, instead of the visual/heavy Thunderbird/KMail or Evolution.
sudo apt-get install mpack
Then to extract the eml contents
In my case I need to use -t to get past the following error messages
munpack ./ServerPerformance.eml tempdesc.txt: File exists image001.jpg.2 (image/jpeg)
I then get every thing out like this.
munpack -t ./ServerPerformance.eml part1 (text/plain) part2 (text/html) image001.jpg.3 (image/jpeg)
Install this plug-ins here. (see important note you can import EML files in IMAP accounts).
To install the extension, follow this procedure:
Go to Tools ➜ ImportExportTools ➜ Import eml File and find your file.
You can use MHonArc (what a website 😍) to convert the
.eml files to HTML, if you want something command-line-y but
pandoc isn't working out for you (it didn't for me):
sudo apt install mhonarc mhonarc -single file.eml > file.html
I've got the same issue in my company: one operator was forwarding a mail using Windows 10 Mail software and the other operator was unable to open the attached .eml file with Thunderbird.
Simply let Thunderbird re-forward the message back to the Thunderbird operator, like if you're forwarding the message to yourself, fixed the issue, actually i was able to see every attachment of the original message plus the true .eml file content.
