Saving Outlook Email Messages As HTML

Microsoft Outlook 98 or later versions allow you to save emails as HTML. HTML, which stands for HyperText Markup Language, is one of the most popular languages for developing Web pages. HTML allows you to further enhance email messages by embedding hyperlinks, displaying pop-up messages, adding videos and retaining other formatting such as fonts and colors.

Step

Start Microsoft Outlook.

Step

Highlight the email you want to save by clicking the left mouse button once while hovering over the email.

Step

Go to the "File" menu and select "File Save As." This opens a new window.

Step

Browse to the folder where you want to save your email.

Step

Confirm the file name is supplied in the "File name" dialog. Typically the subject of the email is populated by default. If the file name is not populated or if you wish to change it, enter the file name in the "File name" dialog.

Step

Select HTML in the “File Save As” dialog.

Step

Click Save. The email message is saved in HTML format.
