If I save or drag an Outlook email message, it creates a .msg file.
When I double click on this file, Outlook opens. The full thing. Not a viewer. This is a pain. I realize that this is useful if I want to use that .msg as a message to reply/forward/resend etc.
But, if I am using a two window pane outliner, MLO, PhatNotes, etc. software, and I want to copy an email into the "note" window pane, I would like for that email to look like my email does when I print it out on the laserjet printer. With the TO, FROM, DATE, SUBJECT information shown. If I simply copy the body of the email and paste it into a text window, that information is lost. And if I try to drag or copy and paste the file from the subject line in Outlook, only the subject information comes over, not the message.
I would like to be able to simply drag and drop an email message into a folder or text window pane where that email message is no longer a .msg Outlook message, but a text file that contains all the information similar to an Outlook email printed page. I want to use MLO or PhatNotes so I can sync important messages onto my PocketPC.
Do you know of a software on a method to achieve this? I do email on my desktop, so if it was desktop software or an Outlook stratigy to get this information into the format I want, that would work. It does not have to be PocketPC software.
