    Default Bridge file associations

    I'm experimenting with using Bridge instead of Windows Explorer as the
    source for building a publication with files in a number of formats, so that
    I can have a better view of graphics to decide which to use. The text is
    copied and pasted from .DOC and .TXT files, but I also have text in a few
    e-mails.

    There is no file association for .EML in Bridge, but the context menu when
    selecting them does offer open and open with. Electing to open with Outlook
    Express starts OE, but doesn't open the message.

    Any ideas to open e-mails from Bridge?

    You'd be best to post this in the Adobe Bridge forum. What is .EML? Never heard of it.

    I guess so. I just hoped someone here would know.

    ..EML is an e-mail message.

    I've just never seen email messages as separate files (even though Outlook or other email clients may internally store them that way). I've always just used the interface of the email client. Since emails are mostly text, and I usually number them in hundreds and thousands, it doesn't seem like Bridge would be very appropriate.

    If you drag a message from Outlook Express to Windows Explorer it will be
    saved as a .EML file which is associated with Outlook Express. I get a lot
    of press releases sent with the text in the body of the message and it's the
    most convenient way of filing them for use later.
