Hello Björn Korinth, Please be sure your Applications handler is set up properly. This article should help: Change what Firefox does when you click on or download a file

Have you checked that your file type association in Windows is set to open .eml files ?

Windows Settings -> Apps -> Default Apps (on the left) listed under the Reset button, you will see

  • Choose Default Apps By File Type
  • Choose Default Apps By Protocol
  • Set Defaults By App

Select *Choose Default Apps By File Type (it may take a minute for the list to load) scroll down to .eml and click on the line to the right of it to select an app.

Yes i tried it with the same error at Outlook. When i try teh "Mailto" it works. But when i try it out of the Program it doesn´t work. Maybe the Program JobRouter makes the Error. Before the last Firefox update it works with out Problems.

What I'm seeing is that Outlook opens .msg files.

Try to open the .eml file in Windows Mail or another mail client (app).

What happens when you try to open the .eml in Windows Mail or another mail app (like Thunderbird) ?

I don´t have another E-mail app on my Laptop and i´m not allowed to install another one on my company Notebook.

What I found is that the .eml file has to be converted to a .pst file to be opened in Outlook.
