The Forward button
To save a message for use in another program, select the message in the Inbox window, choose Save As from the File menu, navigate to the desired storage location, name the file, designate the file type, and click Save. You can save e-mail messages as RTF (RichText Format), Text Only, Outlook Template, or Message Format. (The Outlook Template file type allows you to use the file as a template for other Outlook messages. The Message Format file type is associated with Outlook, which opens the file if you double-click its filename.) To save an attachment to an e-mail message as a separate file, open the message, choose Save Attachments from the File menu, select the attachment's filename, and then designate the storage location for the file. (You can also right-click the attachment icon and choose Save As from the shortcut menu; or you can click the paper clip icon at the right end of the preview pane's title bar, select the file to open it in the appropriate application, and then save it in the usual way.) To save an attachment without opening the message, simply select the message header in the workspace and choose Save Attachments from the File menu.
