    TOP TIP clarification for Office Watch (2000SR1)

    In his latest OFFICE WATCH Woody says <font color=448800>"4. TOP TIP: SAVE MESSAGES AS TEXT
    It's easy to save a message (or messages) as text in
    Outlook or Outlook Express. Just click on the message(s),
    then File | Save As, pick a type - formatted (HTML) or
    plain text being common options - give the file a name, and
    you're done. If you pick many messages before clicking File
    | Save As, all of the messages are placed in a single file.
    You'll be amazed at the difference in size between messages
    saved in this manner, and their alter-egos stored in
    Outlook's native format. Besides, it's easy to index and
    search text files. Searching through Outlook's native
    databases is a pain.""</font color=448800>
    I have found that
    1 with Outlook Express I cannot save multiple mails to a single file, the Save As is greyed out.
    2 with Outlook, I can only save multiple files in a text file.

    I have the same experience, using OL2K, selecting two HTML-format message. Maybe this was changed in XP? Anyone?
