    I've search a lot about this and I found a pretty simple way, no mail conversion.

    I got the OS X 10.6.7 version (maybe won't work on older version).

    Just doubleclick on the .eml file, it will open in a new window via Mail. While open, menu Message - Move to - select the Mailbox. That's it.

    If you do it via shortcuts it goes fast... it could take a while if you got undreds of mails, but it works and it is simple. No need to buy a software. :)

    Hope this helps!

    I solved this problem by downloading PST Viewer Pro at

    It has the ability to view different type of files.

    Also, you can export email into different file type.

    .emi file translation on Mac

    This is how I do it:
    1. Down load attachment file from email
    2. Open attachment in TextEdit
    3. Look to the bottom of the text file and find URL (e.g. "" on a recent email.
    4. Copy URL to browser address line and press RETURN
    5. View on browser page and download from there, if you're interested (I use "RealPlayer Downloader")
