Export Email to PDF format or convert .eml file to PDF including embedded images and HTML visualization (Email renderer)

Please add a built-in sharepoint connector for convert emails to PDF.

Or add a built-in sharepoint connector to convert .eml file to PDF including embedded images and HTML visualization (rendered email).

 

There are some workaround for email export with big limitations:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/save-email-as-pdf/m-p/256989/highlight/false#M258...

  • Emails with images and HTML are not supported

Nowadays many emails use HTML and embedded image. So this “workaround” is not a full workaround. MS SharePoint has already an “export email” connector, but without some options. You could also add in this connector to convert it directly to look pretty when writing the content to a *.pdf file.

 

Or extend the “Convert file” connector which sharepoint (for OneDrive) already has, so it can handle *.eml files with all features emails can have. The PDF export should look like similar to the visualization in an email program like outlook.

And please provide the “Convert file” connector also in a sharepoint version! Actually it is only available for OneDrive, but we need it often in sharepoint document libraries.

 

 

Of course, this is not very simple, because the "convert file" connector (or a new connector)  needs some good and intelligent email renderer. To render a email like a Email program and show most important peaces of the emal header. Of cource you want to see CC, BB, Subject etc. in the PDF-export.

Also "convert file" lacks some options, like "load embedded images?", "page size?", on such things, to make selectable how you want to convert the source file (*.eml) in this case to PDF.

 

To be able to export emails to pdf sounds pretty basic for me and often needed. MS shoudl have all the functions already in outlook. But we need it also in Flow.

 

If there are workarounds how to export the full content to PDF with sharepoint built-in connectors, please tell us.

Are you searching for EML to PDF Conversion? You are at the right place. I’m going to provide you an easy way to access your EML emails to a PDF file format. A WLM file contains the entire PDF user data such as emails, messages, and files attachments. This information is very useful for EML users. Sometimes if somebody wants to share the particular information such as mail then how will you extract the mail contents from the EML. Then here comes the strategy to convert the desired emails to PDF format. For more information: https://www.osttopstapp.com/eml-to-pdf.html

Please don't spam into conversations which your have no clue about.

This is idea is about sharepoint flows. And we look for a solution to to "email to PDF export" in MS flow itself and without custom services.

I believe this is not very simple for MS mainly because of the premium connectors available that claim to do this.

Anyway it would be a great feature.

But think about that all the functionality is already in outlook and "Microsoft Print to PDF" available. So MS has to implement to use these features (with some more mail options) per connector. I still think that export HTML (+in-line images) emails as PDF is a basic use case that often people need.
