Outlook question

    I've tried the googles and can't find the answer I need.

    How do you set a message in MS Outlook so that it is never deleted? Our system automatically prunes messages more than four months old, but I've got messages I need to keep. Any ideas?

    There's a way you can set up a folder on your desktop that everything goes to. I don't know how to do it, but one of my co-workers does. I'll get her to teach me tomorrow, if you want.

    See the folders on the left. There should be a saved mail folder. You can create your own folders.

    (I have my best SportsJournalists.com posts folder that's bulging).

    So you create a folder in saved mail (right click on it and click New Folder). Then you can drag your precious emails into that.

    If none of the above ideas work, just forward the message to yourself every 3.5 months. That way you'll never lose it.

    I don't have a saved mail folder. Otherwise that's exactly what I'm looking for -- a place to save important messages.

    Hmm. Got me there.

    Where is saved mail? Maybe I'm just missing it? You said on the left, but what folders are around it?

    I have a favorite folders batch -- inbox, sent, deleted, drafts, etc.

    And an all mail folders batch under that -- it includes archive folders and saved mail (and you can create as many folders in that as you want).

    It's possible yours is set up so folks can't save stuff and clog the system.
