An EML file is an email that has been created using a program such as Outlook or another similar email program. The file itself contains all the things you’d expect to see in an email, including the content of the mail, the sender and recipient information, as well as the date it was sent. EML files can be opened by many different applications, and tend to be small in size.

A PDF file is a document file that was developed by Adobe. PDF files are popular because they can be opened on almost any platform or device. The file itself can contain text, images, charts and other objects, and also support advanced formatting. This allows other file formats to be easily turned into PDFs.
