When making EML, MHT, and MSG message files and the “Subject:” of the message is used as the file name. Some of the characters are changed. Why?

Windows does not allow certain characters in file names such as: / ? | * : < >. 

Aid4Mail converts the “Subject:” lines that have those characters in them to legal file name characters before processing the mailbox(es) into EML, MHT, and MSG files. Character conversion can be customized through a specialized template file called NameFilter.dat. Open the file NameFilter.txt for instructions and a working example.
