    default save question (Outlook 2003)

    In Outlook when I want to save an email to a folder on my desktop I hit file, save as, and it will open a box which automatically defaults to Text Only in the save as type box. I then change it to Outlook Message Format. My question is can I have it automatically default to the Outlook Message Format?

    This question has been asked several times in the MS Newsgroups, and unfortunately for you, the answer is no, the default file type cannot be changed.

    You could write a brief macro to force the type to MSG, and plug it into the Save As menu, but it would give you no other choice (unless you wrote a complete substitute listbox, etc).
