JPEG is short for the Joint Photographic Experts Group, a group that specializes in developing and maintaining the standards of compressing images. JPEG is a well know standard for image file compression. It has become very well known and is widely adopted across the World Wide Web.
Sometimes Microsoft Outlook users may need to convert email messages into JPEG files for archiving or other purposes. This capability (export Outlook email to JPEG) does not exist natively within Microsoft Outlook, but can be added by installing the Message Export add-in for Outlook.
MessageExport integrates directly into Outlook 2003, 2007, or 2010. It becomes part of the Outlook menu system, and it is used from inside Outlook. Once installed, you will find a toolbar with MessageExport's functions within Outlook.
Follow these instructions to export Outlook email to JPG with MessageExport:
- Open Microsoft Outlook and click on the "MessageExport" tab.
- Next, select the Outlook folder or emails you want to save as a JPG file.
- Choose "Export to JPG" from the MessageExport drop down list.
- Click Export
MessageExport expands Outlook's ability to export email messages to JPEG and many other formats, including PDF, MSG, EML, HTML, MHT, MBOX, GIF, TIF, PNG, TXT and CSV. For more information and to download a free trial, visit the MessageExport home page.
If you need to export email messages from Outside of Microsoft Outlook (i/e you don't have Outlook installed on your computer) then PstViewer Pro may be a better a choice for you. PstViewer Pro also can export Outlook email to JPEG, reading messages from either a .PST file or .MSG files.
