I've begun to use OLE, OL more, but still use Yahoo and some Hotmail accounts for convenience and to receive certain email subscriptions because they're free, and easy to clasify for certain daily emails (NY Times, CNET News, ect.). It also leaves space for my ISP email which uses OLE and has a 10MB limit, giving me 2MB with Hotmail and now 4MB web boxes. I would appreciate knowing the best way to "save" the email to the hard drive. I have begun to paste it into Word because this seems to work fine, and then it also gets somewhat "protected" from any kind of System Restore gizmo, either MS's very weak version, or Roxio Go Back or Farstone's RestoreIT! by depositing these saves in My Documents which is a little safer from a C Drive crash over on my D Drive. But I wanted to use the best method, and the one people experienced for years with Email clients, Word, and different OS's use.
I tried using File>Save As>Web Archive, single File *.mht which works very well for some web pages that won't save as Web Page Complete, (*.htm, *.html) but this dialogue box from File on the IE6 toolbar works only until you delete the email, and then instead of what I thought I successfully saved, I'm left with the current empty in box. So that doesn't work.
Would appreciate the best way to save this email to the hard drive--and I guess there are places on the web springing up that let you store there.
I would also like to know what the different pull downs mean in that "Save AS" dialogue box that comes up from the IE toolbar, i.e. what the difference is from the four pulldowns categorized under "Save As Type" particularly what .mht stands for. Looked once, got a definition but not an explanation of the differences between the functionality of all four. Books don't seem to hit it.
