convert message to text after receiving.


I have some messages that I like to keep --- for a while--- in my inbox or
folders. Is there a way to convert the rich text and html message to plain
text after I have received them? without archiving it or saving it outside of
outlook. Trying to save space. thanks

Is there a command line utility that could be used in a script to convert an incoming Exchange message to a text file? I can do it manually by opening Outlook, and doing a Save As to a text file, but I would like to automate this. Thanks




I noticed that as I scroll thru the messages in the Junk folder it says
"Converted message to text".

Is it possible to grab the message body save messages to files; 1 as
Text, the other as HTML? I wish to use the files in another application
and display the file in the app as text but allow them to click on the
other file to display as HTML?

Is there a Conver2Text function in Outlook?

I'd like to make a database re: information from a newsgroup. Is there an
inexpensive way to mass convert downloaded messages to a simple text file?
How about individual posts to seperate text files?
Thanks




Every email that I receive is converted to Text. Don't see an obvious way to
turn off this "feature" in tools or in junk mail filters.

thanks,

Chris

Hello...

Using Outlook 2007.

When I export a folder of messages to a text file, everything seems to
work -- except that the field mapping step does not show the RECEIVED
or SENT field available to include in the new file.

Is there a way to include those fields in the text file? Or another
workaround?

(In case your wondering, these are old messages that I may want to
access on rare occasions, so I do not want to export those folders as
PST files, because then I would have to import the PST file to search
for text. On those rare occasions when I might need to find something,
I just want to ba able to use a regular text search of the file.)

Thanks.

In 2000 and 2003, it was a simple matter of selecting the text and then
changing through table|convert to text. This doesn't appear to be an option
in Outlook 2007 when forwarding emails with heaps of excess formatting (in a
not-needed table) included.




Hi All,
I have an issue with converting RTF fragments(containing non-English
characters) to Text.

My issue is, I need to parse rtf stream comming in from an application
and collect only the text(including non-english texts like chinese/
japanese). The issue is I cannot use RichEdit component due to
various reasons. My question precisely is:

For example, I will take a rtf stream that has one japanese char "ひ".
The stream for this would be: {rtf1ansi
ansicpg1252deff0deflang2057{fonttbl{f0fromanfprq1fch arset128
Arial Unicode MS;}{f1fswissfcharset0 Arial;}}{*generator Msftedit
5.41.15.1507;}viewkind4uc1pardf0fs20'82'd0f1par}

I want to convert that string to unicode. I can parse the rtf but I
will need some API to convert (charset128, 0x82d0) to 0x3072 (0x3072
is unicode for "ひ"). Can you please let me know how this can be
done? Are there any WindowsAPIs that precisely does this conversion?

Thanks in advance
Sathish




MS Outlook 2007.

When I want to do a "Save as" of a message to save it as a TXT file on
my hard drive, the "Save as" defaults to an .OFT file that I have to
change every time to say TXT. Is there something in the registry or
anywhere else that I can set Outlook to default to TXT instead of OFT?

When my Exchange server receives text/plain emails, and I read them via IMAP, they get automatically converted to multipart/alternative with the original text/plain plus a text/html version.

If I change the MIME encoding under IMAP4->Properties->Message Format to "Provide message body as plain text", then it does so, but it then converts all messages that were originally text/html to text/plain.

I want Exchange to provide the email as it was originally formatted, no matter what. How can I achieve this?

Apologies if this has already been answered. I searched.




Hi!
How can I set MS Exchange to convert all messages sent to specific domine in html format to plain-text format? Also the pictures from html-body must be attached to the plain-text message.
Thanks.




I have tried to figure out how to set up Outlook 2000 so I receive only text
messages - no formatting - for obvious security reasons. However, it seems I
must accept whatever format a sender is using - although I can change my
outgoing messages to be text, formatted or whatever. I have searched for an
answer to this question in the outlook "online" material and the Internet but
have not found an answer. TIA.




Recently when I receive email from stalpes, costco, pennys, etc I get the
message that extral line breaks were removed and the message was converted to
text. When I convert it back to html the graphics come up but none of the
links work.




Hi,
Can anyone help me to create a macro that converts the tables of a recieved message to the regular text.
To do that without macro, I have to do the following:
1-open the message
2-from message tab choose "actions|edit message"
3-from Table Tools|layout choose convert to text.
That would be great to do whole thing witha macro in the reading pane without opening the message in a separate window.

Thanks,
Vahid
