I'm not sure what a (macro) is...
I know when I go to save a file from my mail box, it asks me how I want to save it and where?
I doubt that this helped, but I PROMISE that someone will be here to help you out better...
I have moved this post to (Windows 95,98,ME) So you will get the help that is needed there...

Well. Here's my take on it. Outlook does not support Macros quite the same as other office programs do, ie, you can record a set of steps and give it a shortcut key.
You can write one in Visual Basic for Applications, however, which is not difficult to learn, but you cannot record one like you can in Word or Excel.
It is a shame, since Word and Excel Macro recording give you a great insight on how to write VBA subroutines. (they often put in way too much code, but they are a valuable learning tool.
That's about all I can offer, unfortunately---while I am quite competent in Excel Programming, I've never had the need to do any VBA Outllook programming.
The process shouldn't be too complicated. You would need to determine the how to monitor what is happening--I suspect an Open Event---and have that call a Save subroutine. The triky part would be how to name the file. I am not familiar enough with Outlook to extract the subject (perhaps) from the message body and use that as the name...it might be easier to go with user input (message box would automatically pop up).....
