There are two methods that can be used to save emails to the shared G drive (or to your H drive or a local folder). Both methods are explained below.

  1. Click the item that you want to save as a file.
  2. On the File menu, click Save As.      
  3. In the Save in list, click the location where you want to save the file.
  4. In the File name box, type a name for the file (You can choose to leave this as the message subject).
  5. In the Save as type list, click the file type that you want (Outlook Message Format – Unicode (*.msg) is recommended ).


  1. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the message(s) or create a new folder, and leave it open on your desktop.
  2. In Outlook, click on the message and begin dragging it.
  3. Press the Alt/Tab keys so the folder you want to save it in appears.
  4. Drop the message into the folder.

The message will be saved with a .msg file type (same as above). If you want to save multiple messages to the same folder, select them by using the Ctrl key, and drag and drop them as a group.
