How to Convert EML to PNG in C# .Net Framework

Converting EML files into images is no walk in the park if you are trying to achieve it programmatically. Or at least that was true until today. I will be showing you a nice simple way of getting this done, requiring just a few minutes from your busy schedule.

We are going to start out with package installation, using NuGet’s package manager console. Here’s the command for that.

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

And now we can get to our function call, as see in the below example:

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class ConvertDocumentEmlToPngExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new ConvertDocumentApi();var inputFile = new System.IO.Stream(); // System.IO.Stream | Input file to perform the operation on.try{// Convert Email EML file to PNG image arrayEmlToPngResult result = apiInstance.ConvertDocumentEmlToPng(inputFile);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling ConvertDocumentApi.ConvertDocumentEmlToPng: " + e.Message );}}}}

And that’s it! You’re done.
