I must save all client email correspondence but have to clean out my Outlook

folders. How can I save the messages to the C-drive, perferably in specific

folders within My Documents, as something other than .pst? Word doc or text

would be best.

If you drag and drop your e-mails to your hard drive, they will save as .msg

files by default. If you open each one (tedious), you can select Save As

and select a .txt format as well as the destination folder.

Why not just archive them locally? That won't affect your mailbox quota and

you can still open them in Outlook.

Asking a question?

Please tell us the version of the application you are asking about,

your OS, Service Pack level

and the FULL contents of any error message(s)

Why would you want to save it in non-Outlook format?

See this for tools that can help you with that:
