Reading .MSG or .EML e-Mails in recursive folders

With PstViewer Pro, you have the option to read e-Mails (.msg or .eml files) only from the selected folder, or from folders that are stored in recursive Windows folders.  This trick also works with .pst and .ost e-Mails.

In PstViewer Pro 7, find the Explorer Tree. This is where you will select the folder containing your e-Mail messages.

Locate the "Read All Folders" icon in the Explorer Tree.

If the icon is highlighted, then PstViewer Pro will display all e-Mails in the folder as well as any sub-folders.   This is useful if you are trying to search or filter e-Mails that have been organized into multiple folders, such as by month or year.  Using this function you can load all of the e-Mails and work them as a batch.

Download a free trial of PstViewer Pro and use it for 15 days. It opens multiple e-Mail file types including .msg, .eml, .ost and .pst files.

Changing the layout of PstViewer Pro

PstViewer Pro is an E-Mail viewer with many useful features. You can use it to open Outlook .pst, .ost and .msg email files.  Messages are displayed in a maillist. A preview window lets you see the formatted content of the message.  Double clicking on an email in the list will cause it to open in a full screen view.

Although many people prefer to have the E-Mail preview window below the maillist, there are those of us who prefer to have it displayed on the right.  It's a personal preference that PstViewer Pro can accommodate.

Changing the layout orientation of PstViewer Pro's preview window is simple to do.

Start PstViewer Pro and then click the "View" menu. There are two controls on this menu that you'll use to adjust the orientation of the preview window.

Click "Rotate Layout" and PstViewer Pro will move the preview window to the right hand side.

Tweak the layout of PstViewer Pro with these controls until you are satisfied.
