Gmail wont open eml files

Curse gmail. Unresponsive knaves.

It seems that if someone sends you attachments as '.eml' filetypes, gmail won't read it as anything else but plain text. C'mon, this is just a simple mime file.

So how to read it?

  1. Download the file as a .mht file eg: so  photos1.eml becomes photos1.mht
  2. Open the file with IE9 or Opera 11. Nope chrome, firefox don't work.

Both UnMHT and MAFF allow Firefox to open MHT files.
