    Emailing Outlook Notes

    Hi All,

    Outlook makes it easy to send one of the Outlook Notes via Email by just right clicking on it and selecting Forward.
    However, If you are on the receiving side I can't find an easy way to save that note to the current machine's Outlook Notes area. The only method I've been able to find is:
    1. Open the attachment.
    2. Copy the contents.
    3. Create a new note in Outlook.
    4. Paste the copied data.

    There has to be a easier method but my google searches haven't turned up anything. Maybe I'm using the wrong terms but no luck. So Outlook Gurus what say you all?
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Bruce,

    DUH! The one thing I didn't try. Works like a charm.

    No, I wouldn't have thought of trying that either. I don't know why, but I never expect drag and drop to be the ONLY way of doing something, rather than just a quicker way.

    It cropped up recently with wanting to copy a shortcut from start menu pinned items for backup purposes; same thing there - it's the ONLY way as there's no copy command.

    I D/D e-mails to my calendar all the time, but never thought of doing that for notes... Good Tip!
    Thanks John
