This does not preserve any email headers. The output might be plaintext message. But it is not eml file. A real eml file includes all mail headers, attachments etc.

It is not correct solution, because in this case will be contain file only Body. There is no header...

Indeed, the answer is implying that opening the .txt file in Notepad and saving a new copy with the .eml extension would magically convert it into .eml format, which is of course nonsense. Indeed, the .txt file doesn't even contain the necessary information to be able to perform the conversion.

so this doesn's keep the actual email intact. This worked better for me, maybe it can help someone else who's looking for answers:https://www.codetwo.com/kb/export-email-to-file/
- you gotta use outlook on browser (owa) then send the email you need as attachment. Then, still on outlook owa, go to your sent items and download the attachment, it'll be downloaded as .eml - worked for me

This is such a stupid and useless way to do it, you may as well copy-paste the text into Notepad and save it as an .eml file...
