Outlook Add In Com Save As in msg format


Is there a way to change the default setting for Save as Type when I am
saving an email.  It defaults to Text only but I would like it to default to
Message Format.

Does anyone have or would it be possible for someone to show how to make a COM Add-in to save a email to the hard disk in .msg format.

Thanks Peter

You could try something like:

mailItm.SaveAs(destpath , Outlook.OlSaveAsType.olMSG)

Not sure which language you're programming in.
