possible automatic save to drive based on folder

What I would like to do is i have several mail folders in outlook: folder1, folder2, folder3, etc.  I want to be able to have any emails I place in these folders saved to the harddrive in a given folder.  i.e. I want to set folder1 to save in c:\folders\folder 1 emails\, folder2 to save in c:\folders\folder 2 emails.  Is this possible? If so, how????  I would like to do it without any extra steps other than sorting my email as normal by dragging into the folders.  Also, I would prefer to be able to set up each folder to go to a different place.

Do you want to create rules in outlook so the emails are moved to specific folders ?

Have you tried this ?
create a folder in your desktop or anywhere. Drag the emails from whatever folder you want to that new folder. once you open that new folder , you would see all your emails as individual files. you can do the same for other folders aswell.

Create a new .pst file on your harddrive.

or

Create the local folders where you want.
Then add a shorcut to them on your Outlook Bar.
Drag and drop them on your shortcut to have them placed in your folder.

Sorry, should have mentioned mail is through an exchange server and I would like to keep them on the network.

Also, rules already move some of the mails into their corresponding folders, but most cannot be categorized but by hand; this is not really that big of a problem, the issue is I would like to store a copy of these emails on a local drive for use with another program.

Both methods above will work for local storage.  The first will attach a 2nd (local) .pst file and the other method is self explanatory.

Just use a right mouse button drag or a Ctrl-Drag to get the copy.
