File/Export/Messages/Microsoft Exchange exports files to Outlook without requiring MS Exchange Server's installation.

- if already attempted a prompt for the Profile(since it already found it prior) will be added to the steps.
I suspect the purpose since it is apparent that WLM and Outlook are both installed/available/familiar, is to avoid the extra
content added by WLM to an eml file, thus export to OL and 'Save As' in a more legible(the op's perception) format for reference or
Also Outlook provides are variety of 'save-able' formats.. txt, oft(template), msg, htm, html, mht.
An Outlook message saved as a txt file might looks like this

Whereas the same eml message opened as a text file includes all the headers content(identical to selecting a

While opening a eml message is primarily intended to be accomplished with WLM, that method doesn't always preclude another method
for a desired or comfortable purpose.
