Email Format With Embedded Images and Tables Change

Using Outlook 2016.

I sent a few emails one with pictures embedded in the email and the other with a simple table (2x3) embedded.

I saved the email and then looked at them this morning. With the one email, instead of the attachments being embedded, they were attached. The other email the table was just deleted.

These emails I saved in my Task notes and I had opened them from the task. I also tried saving them out from the task (still not luck).

Are there options somewhere about embedded items being changed?

Thank you.

Converting messages to tasks doesn't generally work well as tasks don't (currently) support HTML. Copy and paste will tend to have better results, but syncing to a smartphone can mess up the formatting.

i have a macro that can create a task using copy and paste - its at Create a Task from an Email using a Rule
