Pst Viewer Pro is now a 64-bit application


Pst Viewer Pro has been updated to a 64-bit Windows application in version 4.8.  This update means that Pst Viewer Pro can now take advantage of the higher addressable memory of 64-bit computers.  While 32-bit Windows systems are limited to less than 4 gigabytes, 64-bit Windows systems running native 64-bit software applications can address beyond hundreds of gigabytes of memory.

Outlook email messages are stored in personal storage tables, or PST files.  PST files contain email messages, file attachments, calendar items and notes, and can grow to be several gigabytes.  We’ve seen them as large as 50 GB.  Pst Viewer Pro will now have the benefit of fully utilizing the memory on your computer while it performs search and export operations.

Version 4.8 of Pst Viewer Pro was released in February, 2013. The trial download file combines both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions into a single installer, and will automatically install the correct version on your computer. Version 4.8 has many important updates and is recommended for all current Pst Viewer Pro customers. Current customers who have not installed version 4.8 will have a 32-bit version. To update from within Pst Viewer Pro, go to Help > Check for Updates

current customers can install Pst Viewer Pro 4.8 from inside the software.

Run the Pst Viewer Pro update installer.  If your computer is running a 64 bit Windows operating system, then Pst Viewer Pro 64-bit will be installed automatically. If you want to check to be sure, go to Help > About and look for the Pst Viewer Pro version number.

Open MSG and EML files without Microsoft Outlook

Files with the Msg and Eml extension are self-contained email message files. They are usually created by email client software like Microsoft Outlook when someone wants to forward a complete copy of an email message to another person. Each msg or eml file contains
a complete email message, including internet header information such as the To/From/Sent data, and
file attachments.  Sometimes they
are created for email archiving or during a legal discovery process.  

While Microsoft Outlook can create .msg files and open them individually, it
does not provide a process for importing msg or eml files directly back into
the Outlook pst database program.  PstViewer Pro is a Windows software application that can help you manage a folder
with dozens or thousands of these files, even if you do not have Microsoft

Pst Viewer Pro lets you display Outlook .msg files formatted as a rich text, html or text.  You can search a
directory of msg or eml files, discover the files that are important to you, and
then view them, access file attachments, print, or convert them to pdf and
other formats, including text, mht, html, and image files such as .gif, .tif,
.png, .bmp.

With Pst Viewer Pro, you can reply to emails through the default email
client app on your computer. Pst Viewer Pro supports Reply, Reply All, or
Forward email with file attachments.

Retrieving file attachments from Msg or Eml Files
Often the most important part of an email are the files that are
attached to it. Pst Viewer Pro gives quick access to file attachments. You can
simply click on the attachments to open them in their native application. You
can right click on file attachments and save them to a folder on your computer
hard drive, or you can drag and drop file attachments from Pst Viewer Pro to
your desktop.

What if you have thousands of msg or eml files and you want to extract all
file attachments?  Pst Viewer Pro makes
this a very easy task.  First, select all
of your emails in your maillist (ctrol-A will select all emails). Next choose “Only
Attachments” from the email export drop down list, then click the “Export”
button. Pst Viewer Pro will examine each .msg or .eml file and if it finds an
attachment, it will make a copy of the attachment and save it  to a folder location that you specify.

Export MSG or EML files to PDF
Pst Viewer Pro can export msg and eml files to PDF files. Whether you have one email file or thousands of them, Pst Viewer Pro can convert them into PDF files in a single bulk operation. Special features are included for handling email file attachments, which may optionally be extracted to a folder on the hard disk, converted into the PDF image, or stored as separate files within the PDF.
