Hi Hilton

The method you are using makes a *back up* copy for use in case your originals get corrupted etc

Not for making a readable copy of each email

To the best of my knowledge there is no program that will open backed up email to read in the way
you seem to require

I regularly make back ups of my email having lost a large amount some years ago and was never able
to recover them

If you want to make a readable copy of certain or all emails in your inbox you will have to find
another method

Sorry I can't help with that but see no good reason to do that so have never tried except the odd
copy and paste into Notepad or a Word document
