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.
