I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hello Balderdash9,

You would format the email in rich text.  In Outlook, go to Tools > Options > Mail Format.  Select Rich Text Format.

Then you can compose the message in RTF, and save the message as msg.

Hope this helps!

The file / save as option is for saving messages outside the Outlook system, and you are correct, there is no richtextformat option.

The onl;y way of doing this would be to select reply to the message (to get all the sender's info into the body of the email); then copy and paste into Word and save the document as an rtf file.
