Save Outlook Messages

Outlook has two ways of saving messages.

If you save from the viewing pane
Highlight the message
Click File / Save as ,,,
In the File name box, type a name for the file
In the Save as type box, select the file type
Click Save

This is the same procedure you used in Outlook 2003

If you open the message in full view, you will notice the new Outlook 2007 interface
Click Office Button

Click Save As on the left side panel
Click Save As: Save a copy of the item ....

Depending on what type of message you are saving will determine the Save as type options:

The message I highlighted was a memo with plain text: therefore, these are the available display options:

Notice the Text Only option is highlighted. You can also save in Outlook Message Format.

If the message was written with HTML format, these are the available display options:

Notice the HTML option is highlighted. Save in this option.

Most of the e-mail you receive will be in HTML format.

If you always save messages in the Unicode message format (Outlook Message Format - Unicode) - for example, if you need to share all the messages you create with co-workers who are using different languages such as Greek, Russian, English, and Japanese or Unicode-only languages such as Hindi - you can change the default file format Outlook uses to save messages.
