Conversion of Email to PDF

We are trying to convert emails to PDF using Aspose.Email and Aspose.Words APIs, but images in message body are not coming in output. Is there any way to get those in output pdf?


Thank you for contacting Aspose support team.

There are different options to handle images in the body. If EML contains inline images, it is treated in a different way whereas if images are embedded in message body via internal URLs, then Aspose.Email doesn’t fetch these images from web during conversion to MHTML.

It is Aspose.Words API that fetches the image data from internet during loading MHTML file and will display images in output PDF if you are connected to internet. Otherwise, in case of no connectivity, the output PDF will be missing the images. Please analyze your sample message and share your feedback.

If the sample message has inline images, please use following sample code to display the images in the body while converting it to PDF.

public static bool ConvertEml(string inputfile, string outputFile)
    MailMessage message = MailMessage.Load(inputfile);
    message.TimeZoneOffset = TimeZone.CurrentTimeZone.GetUtcOffset(message.Date);
    MhtSaveOptions mhtSaveOptions = new MhtSaveOptions
        MhtFormatOptions = MhtFormatOptions.WriteHeader | MhtFormatOptions.WriteCompleteEmailAddress
    mhtSaveOptions.SkipInlineImages = false;
    MemoryStream msgStream = new MemoryStream();
    message.Save(msgStream, mhtSaveOptions);
    msgStream.Position = 0;
    var options = new Aspose.Words.LoadOptions()
        LoadFormat = Aspose.Words.LoadFormat.Mhtml
    var document = new Aspose.Words.Document(msgStream, options);
    document.Save(outputFile, Aspose.Words.SaveFormat.Pdf);
    return true;

You may use the code snippet given below to select the sent items folder.

//For Gmail
