Need to save an email as a PDF for safekeeping or sharing offline? Here’s how to convert and save outlook email as PDF.
For many, Outlook is the application when it comes to managing emails. This is especially true when it comes to professional and office environments. A few reasons why Outlook is so popular is due to its ease of use, a multitude of features, security, and widespread support. Not only that but Outlook is completely integrated into the Office suite and is interoperable between other Office programs like Excel, PowerPoint, etc.
Depending on how you configured the Outlook application, as soon as you open an email, it will download and display the email. Once downloaded, you can open it again even if you are offline. This is very helpful in a lot of situations. In addition to offline emails, there might also be times where you need to convert Outlook email to PDF. This allows you to save the email for offline use and even share it in a universally compatible format. You can also use the PDF to print out the email as needed even without having access to your Outlook app.
