Save Outlook Messages
To save an email message to your P:\ or C:\drive:
Open your Outlook program.
Select the message
Double click to open the message in full view.
Click File Button / Save as ...
In the File name box, type a name for the file
In the Save as type box, select the file type
You have three file type options:
1. Text only: this option should be used
with caution. If the email message is in plain text there will be no problem.
If the email message has any special formatting, all the
unique formatting will be stripped away and only the plain text will be saved.
2. Outlook Message Format - Unicode: This
is the default option.
Click Save and the message is saved with all the formatting.
3. HTML: This is the safest option and
can be opened in any program.
Save to your P:\ or C:\drive and folder.
