How to display imported (from Eudora) e-mails as HTML with attach.

I recently imported my old Eudora folders into Outlook. Everything is where
it should be, but all the HTML e-mails now display showing the HTML source
code in plain text. Also, I can't find a way to access the attachments.

Can anyone tell me how to view these files as HTML or at least Rich Text?
And where to find my attachments?

I tried Outlook Help, but it had nothing to offer on this simple question.

Why can't Microsoft figure out that the most natural thing is to leave
messages in their original formats and keep attachments linked to the
e-mails? This should be the default treatment, or at least a selectable
top-line option.

One of the problems with Eudora is that it doesn't keep the attachments with
the email, it keeps them in a separate folder.

Why do you assume it is a Microsoft problem when it is Eudora that stores
attachments in a non-standard location? Sheesh!!!

First off, it is Eudora, not Outlook, that handles HTML badly. It's a known
issue with Eudora.

As for your attachments, Eudora strips them from your incoming messages and
puts them into a separate folder, which you picked when you installed
Eudora. If you didn't save that folder from your Eudora installation, your
attachments are gone.
