Microsoft Outlook - Save A Series Of Outlook Messages In A Text File (2000/2002/2003)


Perhaps you often receive information, such as new product numbers, in email. Now several of these emails are clogging up your Inbox, but you can't get rid of them since you repeatedly reference them. You can, however, save all these emails in one text file.


Select the messages you'd like to save in the text file from the Message list; use [Ctrl]-click to select several items. If possible, select them in the order that you'd like them to appear in the text file. Then, choose File | Save As. Enter a name for the file in the Name text box of the Save As dialog box. Browse to the location you'd like to save the file, and then click Save. Click Delete to get rid of the email messages; you no longer need them since they're now all contained in a single text file for easy reference.
