The file type eml is just an exported content of an email message, usually users don’t export messages and send the eml file, except for specific situations…  anyway as I already said: setting Kaspersky Selective Scan to High Security Level will scan and detect malicious threats inside, if You open it Kaspersky (in Defaults Settings) will detect it, if You try to send it via email again Kaspersky (in Defaults Settings) will detect it and again if You try to send it via a browser, Kaspersky (in Defaults Settings) will detect it… so Kaspersky can detect eml with different layers of protection…


Agree that Kaspersky does not scan an eml directly in real-time protection but it is not necessary, since it is not a direct executable type, that eml remains harmless unless You manually open it, and in the other cases if You try to open or send it We know Kaspersky will detect it in Defaults Settings… so as I said, it is enough safe behaviour for me, anyway contact to Kaspersky Support for an extra information :)
