Export tp *.pst file

by gary.cole In reply to extract emails out of out ...

Try clicking on file then Import and Export. Choose Export to a File , then choose Personal File Folder (.pst). Select the folder you want to export and the location.

This will create a pst file which can then be copied anywhere you want.

Hopethis helps.

Several Methods...

by JackOfAllTech In reply to extract emails out of out ...

There are several methods you could use to do this. The easiest would be to create a Personal folder and just move everything desired to that.

Another way would be to code a VBA module to open each msg in the current (or specified) folder and save as text or RTF to the H/D.

If all the msgs are in the Inbox, the VB code could be much simpler and simply create a rule that calls it.

Give us some more details and we can give you better answers.

that is a great idea. for the time being as a quick fix, I will use the KISS. Then when some of my projects are done, I will pursue this method. thank you very much. Pauli

Export contents of a folder

by curlergirl In reply to extract emails out of out ...

Within Outlook, you can export the contents of the Inbox folder to a number of different formats - just select File/Import and Export/Export to a file and then select your format. If you are going to re-import to Outlook, a *.pst file is the best choice. If you want to be able to use the information in other programs, you can export to a .csv or .txt file.
