I recently upgraded to Office 365 (OS is Windows 10). In previous versions I was able to specify a default "save" location for Outlook. For example, I often need to save a copy of an email message (in it's original format) on my desktop for storage in a folder outside of Outlook. In older Outlook versions I could select a message, and when I'd click "save as", my desktop would always be selected unless I opted to change the location manually. I've done some searching and can't seem to find any useful info on how to set this preference. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Hi, I'm not sure, but with Office 365 the default (free) plugin for OneDrive can take care of these things.
I don't know if you can specify it somewhere under options but I imagine it is possible.
Have you tried OneDrive? It's free too ;)

What's funny is that Word and Excel has the option, but it's in different sections in Options :/ I do not see the option for save location.... I think it's more last used than a default. At least thats what happened to me.

In my Office 2016 there is an option Save Attachments and there I've set my GoogleDrive as default location but when saving an attachment it reverts to the last used location.
It's clear that Outlook dit not come from the same 'design factory' as Excel and Word and these are not closely related either.
Can't help you much with that, sorry for that

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was definitely able to set a 'save' default for Outlook 2013 (and previous versions as well) but as has been pointed out, the option doesn't seem to be available in Outlook 365. It' the email message itself rather than attachments (as a separate item) that I sometimes save outside of Outlook. It's a bit less convenient now but doable. Thanks again!
