Saving emails

  magnus35 07:57 16 Mar 2007

I have quite a few emails in my trash folder which I would like to store in a folder on my HDD . The only way I have been able to do this is by copying to notepad first .
Is there an easier way ?
Can any email , including those with pictures , be saved to My Documents .

I save all my e-mails in either My Docs or My Pictures except the ones I don't want of course.

I presume you are talking about mails in Outlook express? why not create sub folders IN OE and store your mails that way?

or are you discussing web mail?

If a document is highlighted or 'select all' is clicked , then 'copy' is selected , then it wont let me paste to My Docs . I can only save to Notepad , and then without pictures or certain parts of text .

Just highlight the e-mail in OE and click on File/Save as. Save them to whatever folder you wish. I have a folder for e-mails which contains sub-folders for different one.

Sounds as if you have been clicking on 'Edit.'

Any luck?

are you reading the e mails on your tiscali server or in your Outlook express application?

as you can have a trash folder on both the server and the Outlook express program

that needs to be established as my instructions are for Outlook Express, from which it is easy to save them.

Thanks for the responses .
I don't use Outlook Express .
After opening a message I right click and ' select all ' then seem only to be able to choose 'copy' . Trouble is the only place it will copy to is notepad and often incompletely .
