How to save an email message as a file

Outlook gives you several options for saving an email message. A message that you receive, for example, can be saved as a file on your computer or in another folder in Outlook. A message you're composing can be saved as a draft and finished later.

Tip: Do you want to save an email message as a PDF file? In Windows 10, use the Print command to print your message to a PDF.
