How to Save Email, without extra folder being created

Whenever I try to save an email in Outlook 2007 to a customer file, an 
additional folder gets created. Is there a way around this. It looks like 
saving it as an .mht file, but is there a way to have outlook 2007 
automatically default to this save as type?

No, you cant pick a default save as type, but you might be able to use VBA 
to automate it.

Not sure I understand your problem, but I've had something similar which may 
When saving to customer file using Express, one just 'saves' as a email.  in 
Outlook there's a drop down menu with several format choices.  Use number 
three 'Outlook Message format' - this also saves any attachments to that 
email, and from then on works exactly like Express.

The problem is that I will get nusty dialog that my application "is not responding". 2. When WM_QUERYENDSESSION comes fire the thread and return FALSE from the handler.
