Saving Outlook 2016 e-mail as .Eml

Microsoft Outlook 2016 emails exist in Microsoft's proprietary .pst and .msg file formats.  While migrating Outlook 2016 email, you might want to convert your emails to .eml file format, an open specification file format (RFC-822) that is used by nearly every non-Microsoft email client and service, including Thunderbird and Gmail.

Microsoft Outlook 2016 has a limited ability to export email messages. It can save individual messages to Text (.txt), Outlook Template (.oft), Outlook Message Format (.msg), and the newer unicode Outlook Message Format (also .msg).
