Hello, Thank you for coming to Just Answer my name is***** best way to save email to highlight the files you want to save and use save as. First go to the emails you want to save if it is multiple emails you can select the first email and then press control and a at the same time. Once they are all highlighted go back to the top and press file. Then you will select save as it will give you the option to save it as a .txt or you can save it in a different format. It will also ask you where to save it to.
