I am trying to come up with an easy way (one button click) to convert an email to a PDF.

My company doesn't want to spend the money to buy additional software, we don't have office 2010 just outlook 2010.

Is there a macro or ribbon button I can create that will convert a highlighted email or open email into a PDF format without having to click through the print menu every time?

    If you're looking for a native function it seems like you might be out of luck:

    That said it seems that another EE member has taken the time to Automatically Printing/Saving Emails/Attachments in Outlook write an article on how to knock something together yourself.
