    What is the file name.extension for saved mail messages?

    What is the file called, and where (directory) is it stored?

    For Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail, messages are stored as discrete .EML
    files. Windows Mail stores messages under
    "C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail and WLM has its
    store at "C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Mail"
