How on earth do I save an email (@btinternet.com) ?

For a serious amount of time I have been going around in ever decreasing circles trying (unsuccessfully) to save a simple BT email.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Can someone please let me know how I save an email without having to print it out?

 

Thank you.

Welcome to this user forum. @D-Oh

 

Use an email client like Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail. You can then save, archive or print your messages.

Depends what you mean by 'save'. Unless you delete it, it will remain 'saved' in your inbox in webmail (which I assume you are using). As Keith says, a far better solution is a mail client where mails are stored on your machine.

Thank you for your reply.

 

I obviously didn't make myself clear enough.

 

By 'Save', I meant file the actual email in a storage folder.

To be honest, I can't see the difference in leaving it in the inbox and putting it another folder. It's still sitting on BT's mail server where it is under their control rather than truly 'saved' on your machine as it would be with a mail client.

 

As I said previously, it depends what you mean by 'saved'.
