Thank you, that isnt really the solution the user is looking for.  What they want to do is have a folder in their mail profile that they can just drop an email into as a .msg file, without having to open up explorer every time

Yes if you have a PST or a Outlook data files created and located in Local or Network drive you can surely drag and drop or even work a rule to send emails to that folder\file

I think you are correct, but this is the same as creating a standard pst file.  I believe you could just create a folder in Outlook 2003 that was a normal data folder.  Its a bit before my time though.

Thank you for your solutions
