Thunderbird officially supports the format .eml-file but I am not able to save mails into this format. Please advise how to do this.

Yes

Displays a 'Save Message As' dialog where you can select a location on your local disks or network to save a copy of the message you are currently reading. You can save as .eml, .html, or .txt file types. In the Windows version, select these under 'Save as type:', in the Linux version change the default extension of '.eml' to either '.html' or '.txt' if you wish to save it in one of these other formats. (Note, the only way to open a '.eml' format file in the Linux version is to use the File > Open Saved Message menu selection.)

Use ImportExportTools. It allows EML exports. See my post for details.
