I am using Outlook 2007 and when I try to use the Acrobat X button to convert a folder (or group of emails) to a pdf, even though it says it is processing 31 emails, only the first email is in the pdf when it opens for viewing. Any idea as to why this is happening?

Do you have the full version or the trial version?
What version of Windows do you have installed?
Is it 32 bit or 64 bit

What location are you trying to save the PDFs to..
Is it a local location or network location

Try saveing them to just c:\

I have the full version of Acrobat X and I am using Windows Vista Business 32bit. Although I was trying to save the PDFs to a drive on our LAN, I just  tried saving to my local Desktop but had the same results of just one email being converted.

And Im assuming your PC meets the minimum requirements (See Below)

Is this a fresh install of the product?
Did it ever work before?

Also is your outlook conencted to an exchange account?
Or is this a POP Email Account

If an exchange account, is Cached Exchange mode on
Will find this under account settings, Under Exchange Server name

If CEM is on try turning it off

When running the conversion are you creating a merged PDF?
Try creating an PDF Porfolio

Might also try putting the selected emails in their own folder
Then use the convert folder option

If still go luck

I might look to see if there are any updates for Windows, or Acrobat X

Failing that, might consider a re-install of the Acrobat X product

The options I had were:
1. Convert Selected Messages
       a. Create New
       b. Append to
2. Convert Selected Folder
       a. Create New
       b. Append to
I've tried all four (the emails were already in their own folder) with no success.
Following your link, I found where one can set the "Portfolio" option but found that PDF Portfolio was already selected (must be the default, I didn't choose that) so just to experiment I DE-selected it and ran the converter again... voila!... that did the trick, I got all the emails in that folder in one pdf.
