How Do I Save An Email As A Webpage



I received an email (on one of my webmail accounts) with a record number of links, images, etc., that I wanted to save in a webpage file format so that I wouldn’t have to access this webmail account every time that I wanted to view a link (or image).

The webmail did not offer me any option that I could find to do that (and that was the first time that I even looked for such an option); the browser (IE) offers me that option when I surf (under File/Save As), but when I tried that with this email, I received an Error Message that stated, “webpage could not be saved”.

I tried the “Select all” copy & paste route with two of my word processing programs (Word & WordPerfect), but neither worked well to a level where what I wanted was functional, i. e., whole oodles of stuff didn’t make it over in the paste for unknown reasons.

Any suggestions?

Do you use only webmail? No email program on your system?

Possible good idea that warrants further work. I do have a POP3 email account, AND I could Forward that email to it, and try BOTH my IE and possibly my Firefox browser to see what happens [I've never tried Firefox with this POP3 account; so that's an unknown], not to mention that Firefox has all kinds of free add-ons that might fit the bill re an enhanced feature of some type for this chore. By the way, this webmail is the free type and definitely in the no-frills, re features, category.

It also has crossed my mind that perhaps Plan B would be to attempt to create a PDF file (I've downloaded the recent Ver 10.x of the Adobe Reader, and perhaps I'll find a useful feature there).
PS: I have no idea why Adobe gave this upgrade a version number that ended in an "x", cause it's not a beta version as far as I can tell, i. e., I simply clicked on Update on my Reader Ver 9 and that is what the update download did all on its own.
