Total Mail Converter

Features

Total Mail Converter has one main feature and that’s (you guessed it right) converting e-mails from .EML and .MSG formats to whatever format you desire. The list of supported export formats is too long to post in our Total Mail Converter review. So let’s just say that it can export your e-mails as HTML, MS Word document, .RTF, .TXT, and even as .JPEG images to name a few.

One of the really handy features of this software is that it can convert e-mails in bulk. You won’t have to convert messages one by one. Plus you can configure how it names converted files, which is great when you have more than a hundred e-mails to convert.

Another great feature is that e-mail attachments won’t get lost in the process. Attached images will be converted as is and added to the output file. Plus you will have the option to make Total Mail Converter create dedicated folders for e-mail attachments.

But the feature I liked most is something very simple, yet tremendously useful. Total Mail Converter can add headers and footers to the output documents, and they can be fully customized. Fancy adding a date or just some text? No problem! You can even use one of the built-in templates to customize how your converted e-mails look. Or, if you’re tech savvy enough, create your own CSS template.

Effectiveness

For the purpose of this Total Mail Converter review I’ve tested the program on a Windows 7 computer together with Microsoft Outlook 2007. I converted some e-mails to PDF and .DOC and everything worked fine. The only annoying bit was that the program didn’t open the folder with e-mails by default. So it took me quite a while to find the folder where Outlook kept my e-mails.

Ease of Use

Apart from the folder selection hickup I mentioned before, Total Mail Converter is fairly easy to use and configure. It’s design is a bit bland, but it’s very clean and easy to navigate. And if you ever get lost, CoolUtils have a really useful help section for this program.

[box]The Verdict: Total Mail Converter is a reliable tool that will be of great help to business users and freelancers. You can download your copy and check upgrade options. The full version of the program costs $59.90.[/box]
