How Do I Get Emails To Open On iPhone Files App?

Hi Gary, I have Files App on my iPhone, and sync selected documents from my MBA via iCloud Drive. Trouble is, any email correspondence I have saved in Documents Folders on MBA doesn’t open when viewed in Files App on iPhone. Do you know why this is, and is there a way of opening emails in Files? Thanks.

    Are these .eml files? The Mail app in iOS can’t open eml files, unfortunately. You have two good options. First, instead of saving messages as eml files, save them as PDF files. The second is to get an app for your iPhone that can open eml files. See https://macmost.com/better-ways-to-organize-important-email-messages-on-your-mac.html

    Thanks Gary, yes, they are .eml files. I will save as PDF, and their attachments saved separately (.DOC / .PAGES etc), then uploaded to iCloud Files.
    I’ll take a look at your video link.
    Thanks again.
