Default file format Outlook 2007 Save As

I have a user who is just too dang lazy to chose TXT from the Save As type when saving a message to file from Outlook 2007.

Is there a way to change this to default to the TXT format?  

I tried to explain that this is based on the format of the message recieved, but oh no.. this wasn't good enough.  Now I am here spending time on this when I could be doing something useful.

Ok, thanks for any advice and for reading my rant.

There is no way natively within to change format of Save As window.  There may be a script, but I do not know of any.
Hi silsuba,

Change the user's option in Outlook to "read all mail as plain text".
Tools ~ Options ~ Email Options

Those darn drop down arrows are such a pain in the ...

silsuba, any update?

Thanks folks for the input.  I managed to convince the users to just accept the defaults.

Much appreciated
