It would be slick to be able to import OE or Outlook
eml files directly, without, selecting all the text,
pasting it, and then arranging the node.

    Hmmmmm. .eml files (If I remember correctly--I haven't used outlook in ages) are just text files, aren't they? It
    shouldn't be that hard to make teh change to import them.

    In response to the post that *.eml file is a simple text
    file, that is and isn't quite true. It can be read as
    simple text file, however all the formatting and active
    hyperlinks are toast, but I'll take anything :)

    I don't use Outlook. What are .eml files, what is their format, and what is the point of keeping them in KeyNote?

    Outlook Express is currently my standard email program. I'm
    still searching for something to use in its stead, but I
    haven't found anything to my liking yet. One of OE's flaws
    is that the folder system starts to thrash the hard drive
    once the folders get to a certain size. For someone like
    me, I keep a lot of email for reference and for tracking. I
    am in the slow process of converting each mail individually
    to text, and then pasting them into keynote. However,
    because a lot of the email is sent in html (and more and
    more newsletters are only sending out html mail now), a lot
    of the formatting gets lost in the conversion. It would
    just be nicer (and hopefully a whole lot faster). However,
    I have found that as of late, OE can finally, consistantly
    save an email as an html file which I then can import
    directly into KeyNote. So, I'm okay if this thread is closed.
