    I am using Outlook 2000 on a Win2k system. I need to be able to save certain emails to a seperate folder on the server. I always need to change the File Type to Message Format (*.msg) from the default of HTML (*.htm).
    Is there a way, or registry hack, that always sets the File Type as Message Format whenever I click File, Save as?

    You should be able to highlight all of the messages in your Inbox or other folder and then drag them to a new folder on your desktop or other location. To highlight multiple messages just hold the Control key while you left-click each one. Once they are all highlighted, drag them to wherever you want and they should copy to the new location while retaining the extension .msg.

    Hey Rollin, I tried that and it works very well, thanks. However, before I teach something new to my users, is there any way to get the *.msg type to stick as default? I know the drag and drop seems easy enough, but the simpler the better for my bunch.
