I would like to save my Emails for later use and reference, preferably on a CD.  I need easy access to these files from time to time, but have hundreds (thousands?) wiht important attachments that must be kept.

Please tell me how to:
1.  Save the file from Outlook 2002 to a folder on the desktop
2.  Can I savew it with anyother extension other than a .PST?
3.  Can I read these files (.PST) on Entourage for Mac G5?  If not, how do I convert them?
4.  Is there a simple program or commercial shareware program that can do this all for me, easily?

Thanks
Doug

1. Are you wanting to save the attachments to a folder on the desktop? If so you can just right click the attachments and click Save As.
2. You can save individual emails as individual files, but that's not recommended. Reason being, if you have two emails with the subject of "Hello" both will be saved with the same file name so one will overwrite the other. A PST file is the proper way to save emails.
3. AFAIK, you cannot read PST files on Entourage. I'm not sure how to convert them. SOrry.
4. Not sure, but check here:

I still do not have an answer.  I do not want to separate the attachments from the Email message when I save it to a disk.
