    Hi there and thank you for looking at this point.

    I am trying to easily move e-mails from my Microsoft Outlook 2007 to a

    folder on an external hard drive. Currently, at the moment I have to

    open up the folder I will be adding e-mails to, go into Outlook and

    drag the e-mails to that folder.

    Is there any way of setting up short cut Folders within Outlooks "Mail

    Folders pain" so that I can just drop e-mails into those folders and

    know the e-mail will be copied across?

    All the very best, and thens for your help in advance.

    Can I ask what is your purpose in doing this? (There may be several ways,

    depending on the final use...)

    With Outlook 2002 and earlier, the Shortcuts pane of the Outlook bar could

    hold file system folder shortcuts and you could drag items to those shortcuts

    and it would put the items in the file system folders to which the shortcuts

    pointed. Outlook 2003 and later lost that ability.

    Hi there and thanks for coming back to me, we have a lot of e-mails,

    which come in with attachments, and I do not want to lose the images and

    other documents by accident if Outlook makes an archive file. All I

    really want to be able to do is drag and drop e-mails from a client

    straight into a folder within Outlook, that will then send the file to a

    next and hard drive for keeping. These files need to be accessed by

    other people in our home office.

    I hope this makes sense.
