    I have 93 forwarded e-ms(some w/ attachments, and some not) I would like to save these to a folder in My Docs. The only way I know to do it is to save each one to a word doc, and then put in the folder. I am looking for a quicker way. If I had to, I wouldn't mind having them all on one doc. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Yes - Outlook or Outlook Express.

    In Outlook you can do a FIle Save to get a text version of the mail, File Save Attachment and the attachments keep their format.

    Or you can save them to a personal folder within Outlook.

    What are you trying to accomplish?

    my husband wrote a blog, and there were many comments, which I would like to save, along with the blog, in a folder in 'my docs', but i don't want to do it if it entails opening, copying, and pasting each one--don't have the time. ?? thanks

    Outlook messages can be saved in their original format by simply highlighting the message(s) in your Inbox or other location in Outlook and dragging them into your "My Documents" directory. This will save a copy of the message in its original raw format which has an extenstion of .msg. If you want to view the saved message at any another time simply double-click the saved .msg file and it will open in an Outlook mail window (assuming you have Outlook installed)

    If you want to save all the emails in text format (.txt) or as a Word document (.doc) this can be easily done by using a Visual Basic macro. If you want to use a macro I would be happy to help you out...just let me know.

    If your email messages have been archived, it is likely that Outlook has created a seperate single .PST file that holds all those emails. To be able to see them again you would have to tell Outlook to re-open the .PST file that it created. Do a search on your system for any file with the extension .PST and tell us how many of them are on your system and what they are called.
