How To Save Email Outside Of Outlook


Q. Is there any way to save an Outlook e-mail other than in the Inbox folder?

A. Yes, there is, and it’s important that you do because the Outlook mail folder can get so fat it becomes hard to manage. Here’s how:

Open the e-mail message, go to the toolbar and click on File, Save As . You can move the messages anyplace on your computer. I set up a special folder, called E-mail, along with multiple subfolders, where I file and save most of my messages.
