I can drag and drop but I lose the date of the actual email, it creates files with the actual date that the file was moved. I would also like to setup a rule in Outlook to automatically copy emails from a certain sender to a folder on the file system. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

thanks...

Dear Niles,

Does Edit - Move to Folder (from the inbox) do what you want? It preserves the date.

Have you tried creating a rule. Open the message and then goto Actions Create Rule


Hope this works for you.

All the Best

'Edit - Move to folder' lets me move to a folder within Outlook but it won't let me move it to a folder directly on my file system. If I could get this to allow me to move the message to my file system, the rule would definitely work. This is where I am having the problem.

Thanks for the response --

so basically you're wanting to make a backup of your emails? y ou can either do file import and export > choose export to file > select your mailbox...and make sure to save the mail as a pst...then select a location...you can alternately do this through the "archive" feature in outlook...if you use the archive feature you can set your mailbox to archive once a month...once a week...twice a day...whatever

I want to save the emails as files in a folder on my file system so that other users on my network can open them up at will without having to setup the PST file on every PC.

within outlook you can create a shared mail folder and what not...that will allow whoever you give permsision to look at the emails...the ability to do so...in outlook help search for sharing...or shared emails...or public folders
