6. Maybe to cut and paste them to notepad and remember to name them for
retrieval later on.

Possibly someone has a better way to go than that though.

8. That's pretty much what I do...
I use the PM title as the name so I can remember what it was about. I also put the date it was sent/received in the email header.

15. Well, there is one more way if you have windows 7. You can go to
the start area and find the 'snipping tool' and it's the same as doing a screen shot. Only I think it allows you to bypass using 'Paint', like you do in a screen shot.

And then you save the snip to where ever you want. To your pictures or desktop.

I might be a little off, but I think that's how it goes.

If you have trouble finding the snipping tool, just type it into your search function.

It should show up right away.

16. but, I would still have to do it one PM at a time, right? I was hoping for a way
to just transfer my whole PM box/file at one fell swoop.

:shrug:

7. My dear Tuesday Afternoon!
What works for me: I just copy and paste the PM into a new email, which I don't send. My computer then asks me if (since the email wasn't sent) if I would like to store it in my drafts folder. I click on "yes."

It's a bit cumbersome, but it gets the job done.

I had thought that if I just saved the PM title, that that would work. I lost several important ones that way. It doesn't work once you delete the originals.

I routinely scan ATA and now and then I find a genuine bit of helpful info.

Thank goodness we have some time yet. DU3 is supposed to launch mid-December.
