Why to Convert
As a C++ developer, you may need to add email conversion features inside your applications. This could be for a variety of reasons, such as to make the emails more accessible to a wider audience, or to make them easier to store and manage.
How Aspose.Total Helps for EMLX to TIFF Conversion
Aspose.Total for C++ is a comprehensive suite of APIs that provides developers with the tools they need to create, edit, and convert documents, emails, and other file formats. It includes two APIs that are particularly useful for email conversion: Aspose.Email for C++ and Aspose.Words for C++.
Using Aspose.Email for C++, you can convert EMLX file format to HTML. After that, by using Aspose.Words for C++ API, you can export HTML to TIFF. Both APIs come under the Aspose.Total for C++ package, making it easy to access both APIs in one convenient package.
The Aspose.Email for C++ API is a powerful tool for email conversion, allowing you to convert emails from EMLX to HTML quickly and easily. It also provides a range of other features, such as the ability to read and write emails in various formats, and the ability to access email attachments.
The Aspose.Words for C++ API is a powerful tool for document conversion, allowing you to convert HTML to TIFF quickly and easily. It also provides a range of other features, such as the ability to create, edit, and convert documents in various formats, and the ability to access document elements.
By using Aspose.Total for C++, you can easily access both Aspose.Email for C++ and Aspose.Words for C++, making it easy to convert emails from EMLX to TIFF. This makes it easy to add email conversion features to your applications, allowing you to quickly and easily convert emails from EMLX to TIFF.
C++ API to Convert EMLX to TIFF
Get Started with C++ File Format APIs
Install from command line as
nuget install Aspose.Total.Cpp or via Package Manager Console of Visual Studio with
Alternatively, get the offline MSI installer or DLLs in a ZIP file from downloads .
// load the EMLX file to be converted System::SharedPtr<MailMessage> msg = MailMessage::Load(u"sourceFile.emlx"); // save EMLX as a HTML msg->Save(u"HtmlOutput.html", SaveOptions::get_DefaultHtml()); // load HTML with an instance of Document System::SharedPtr<Document> doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(u"HtmlOutput.html"); // call save method while passing Tiff as save format doc->Save(u"convertedFile.Tiff");
Parse EMLX File via C++
Not only you can convert your EMLX to TIFF, but you can read, manipulate, and parse EMLX document. You can get subject, address, body, recipients information of the email by using MapiMessage class of Aspose.Email for C++ API. For example, you can check for a specific sender email for the conversion by using get_SenderEmailAddress() property.
// create an instance of MapiMessage from file System::SharedPtr<MapiMessage> msg = MapiMessage::FromFile(dataDir + L"message.emlx"); // get subject System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Subject:") + msg->get_Subject()); // get from address System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"From:") + msg->get_SenderEmailAddress()); // get body System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Body") + msg->get_Body()); // get recipients information System::Console::WriteLine(System::String(L"Recipient: ") + msg->get_Recipients());
C++ API to Restrict TIFF File Format Editing
You can also add document protection features in your app while exporting the document from EMLX to TIFF. Adding protection to your document is a simple process, as all you need to do is apply the protection method to your document. You can set protection type to ReadOnly to restrict the user to edit the document.
// create a new document and protect it with a password. auto doc = System::MakeObject<Document>(); // apply Document Protection. doc->Protect(ProtectionType::ReadOnly, u"password"); // save the document. doc->Save(u"DocumentProtection.PasswordProtection.Tiff");

What is EMLX File Format?
The EMLX file format is a variant of the EML (Electronic Mail) format specifically used by Apple Mail, the default email client for macOS. While EML files are widely used by various email clients, EMLX files are specific to Apple Mail.
EMLX files store email messages individually, similar to EML files, but with slight differences in their file structure. Each EMLX file represents a single email message and contains the complete message data, including the sender and recipient details, subject, date, attachments, and the message body. These files are typically stored in a specific directory hierarchy within the user’s mailbox folder in Apple Mail.
The EMLX format is based on the MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) standard, allowing for the inclusion of various types of content within email messages. This includes text, HTML formatting, attachments, and embedded images, ensuring that the entire email message is preserved within the EMLX file.
EMLX files are useful for email archiving, backup, and migration purposes within the Apple Mail ecosystem. They provide a convenient way to store and transfer individual email messages while maintaining their original formatting and structure. EMLX files can be easily shared or transferred between different instances of Apple Mail or imported into other email clients that support the EMLX format.
It’s important to note that EMLX files are specific to Apple Mail and may not be directly compatible with other email clients. However, conversion tools or email migration software can often convert EMLX files to other standard email formats for broader compatibility.
What is TIFF File Format?
TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) is a widely used file format for storing images, favored by graphic artists, the publishing industry, and photographers, both professional and amateur. It offers flexibility and versatility for image storage and manipulation. TIFF files can be either lossless or lossy. Lossless TIFF files retain all the original image data without any compression, resulting in larger file sizes. Lossy TIFF files, on the other hand, use compression techniques to reduce file size but may sacrifice some image quality.
Originally developed by Aldus, which later became part of Adobe, TIFF is now an Adobe specification. The most recent version was released in June 2009. TIFF files are supported by numerous image editing programs and have become a standard format for various applications.
TIFF files are commonly used when images require editing or manipulation. They are frequently utilized as input files in printing presses due to their high quality and ability to preserve fine details. Moreover, TIFF files are often chosen for archival purposes since they are lossless, ensuring that all image information is retained.
It’s important to note that TIFF files can be quite large, especially when uncompressed. As a result, they are sometimes converted to smaller formats like JPEG before being shared online or via email to optimize file size and transmission speed.
