Automatically Convert Outlook Email to PDF using MessageExport

Encryptomatic LLC's MessageExport(TM) add-in for Microsoft Outlook lets you transform your email content in lots of useful ways.

Normally, people simply select the emails they want to export and then click the "Export" button.  But what if your needs are little more complex than that?  What if you want to always export new emails to PDF files, and you want it to be done automatically, rather than manually?

This article shows how use MessageExport to convert inbound email messages into PDF files, automatically.

Editing Email Export Profiles

You can create new and unique export profiles in MessageExport. However, for simplicity, we are going to alter the existing"Export to PDF" profile so that when a new email message is received, MessageExport will automatically convert it to a PDF file.

From the MessageExport toolbar in Outlook, select the "Export to PDF" profile.

This is the MessageExport toolbar tab in Microsoft Office Outlook 2016.

On the "Common" tab, change the "Export from" drop down list to "Pre-defined folder," and then set the "Outlook folder" to your Inbox.

Its also a good idea to check the box for "Turn on Export History" to avoid duplicating emails during the export process.

Now jump to the tab labeled "Scheduler."

Scheduler Tab
The Scheduler tells MessageExport to run this export profile on a time table that you select.  Lets say we want to run this export profile once every hour. Here's how we do that.

First, click "Enable" to activate the scheduler. 
Next, click "Repeat every..." and enter "1" into the Hrs column.

Save it, and you're ready to go.

MessageExport will now check your Outlook inbox every hour. If it finds any new emails there, it will automatically convert them to a PDF file.

To stop the automatic email conversion process, just uncheck "Enabled."

There are countless other ways you can configure MessageExport using the scheduler.

How to Save an Outlook Email as a PDF

While there is a lot of sofware that claims to convert Outlook email messages into PDF files, they vary greatly in their capabilities.  Before purchasing any email-to-PDF software, consider exactly what you need to accomplish.

  • Are you converting one email, or thousands?   
  • Do you want to work from within an email client like Microsoft Outlook, or outside of Outlook in a separate software package? 
  • Do you need to convert email file attachments into the image?
  • Do you prefer to have the file attachments embedded within the PDF document, or extracted from the PDF file?
  • Do you want to convert multiple emails into a single PDF file, or perhaps you even want to append emails to a single PDF document as you discover them?
  • Is it important to give the resulting PDF files a specific file naming structure?
  • Can the software handle emails that are themselves file attachments?

Few affordable windows email conversion software packages can accomplish all of the above tasks reliably.  Here are two that can.

Embedded E-Mail Processing: How to Convert Outlook Email With Email File Attachments to PDF?

MessageExport is a professional tool designed specifically for people who have important work to do with E-Mail.  It integrates tightly with Microsoft Office Outlook, enhancing the user experience with powerful new features designed to make their work life easier and more productive.

Today we released MessageExport 3.5, and we're excited about the new features it has.  One feature was requestd by several customers was to improve MessageExport's handling of .msg and .eml email file attachments (emails within emails).

In this release, we've improved how MessageExport handles E-Mail file attachments that are themselves E-Mails during the process of converting (or bulk converting)  E-Mails to PDF.

Say that you are working on a legal case, and you have just received a "smoking gun" E-Mail message as part of discovery.  This E-Mail that has a .MSG E-Mail file attached to it.  And inside that .MSG E-Mail attachment, is another E-Mail message, that contains yet another .MSG E-Mail file attachment.  And lets also say that each of these E-Mails contain other attachments, such as .jpg images.

If you are the lucky person who is responsible to convert this E-Mail message (which is actually four different nested E-Mails) into a PDF file, it may take you 30 minutes or longer to manually disassemble the entire E-Mail and attachments, re-organize them into a logical structure that preserves their context, and then convert them all into a single PDF file.

MessageExport 3.5 Exports E-Mails That Are Attachments Into PDF Files.


Or, you could just click on the main E-Mail message, choose "Export to PDF" from the MessageExport toolbar, and click "Export."  MessageExport will complete the entire E-Mail to PDF operation for you in less than a minute, including the processing of emails that are themselves forwarded email attachments.

MessageExport 3.5 also includes a re-vamped naming structure, which we call Breadcrumbs" for lack of a better term. Breadcrumbs help to orient the viewer to the content within the PDF.  For example, it may be important to know the order and the structure of the various E-Mails, otherwise how can you tell who sent which file to whom?

Embedded email processing is a powerful new feature for MessageExport. We hope it will help make you more efficient, and your work more delightful.

If you are already a MessageExport customer, you may be entitled to free upgrade.

If you have never tried MessageExport, take it for a 15 day spin. If it meets your needs, we'd love to have you as a customer. Click here to download a free trial of MessageExport.

Bulk Converting Outlook Email to PDF With Symantec Enterprise Vault

Symantec® Enterprise Vault™ is an information archiving product used in many large organizations. It allows administrators to apply policies to collected data, while protecting and gathering information in a centralized repository.

Enterprise Vault includes a Microsoft Outlook add-in.  Outlook data is stored in the vault, and emails are replaced with a short text stub file.  The Outlook mail list looks fairly normal, as only the first 100 characters or so are displayed in the expanded mail list. When an Enterprise Vault user clicks on an Outlook email message the content of the email is quickly retrieved from the vault, and displayed in a separate window.

For all it's benefits, Enterprise Vault presents Outlook users with some difficulty while exporting emails in bulk. The MessageExport™ add-in by Encryptomatic® integrates with Outlook and Enterprise Vault. MessageExport allows users to retrieve emails from the vault so that it can perform bulk email export functions, such as saving vaulted emails in .pdf, .msg, .tiff and other useful file formats.

Before exporting vaulted emails with MessageExport, you'll first to enter your credentials. Enter the MessageExport settings and choose the "Enterprise Vault" settings.

After the credentials are entered, you're now ready to export emails. The process for exporting emails is the same as a non-Enterprise Vault environment. Just select any email or Outlook folder, choose the export profile (such as Export to PDF) from the drop down list, and click the "Export" button.

Converting Email with Microsoft Outlook 2013 Rules and MessageExport Add-On.

The MessageExport Add-in for Microsoft Outlook by Encryptomatic LLC extends Outlook's ability to convert, export and copy email messages automatically.  Our article today looks at various ways that you can use Microsoft Outlook Rules and MessageExport together to perform a complex email processing operation.

While MessageExport will address the needs of most people right out of the box, sometimes custom solutions need to be created. MessageExport does not integrate directly to Outlook rules, but using them together provides a vast range of possibilities for email processing.

We're often surprised at how people use MessageExport. It was designed to give users a wide range of options to design custom solutions to their email content management challeges. We love hearing about the creative ways that people use MessageExport and the real-life issues our software helps people solve.

Today we are designing a solution that will result in email messages received in Outlook, from a specific client domain, being converted into a PDF file, copied to a specific folder, and then the original email message in Outlook will be deleted.

Let's break down our project. The steps in involved in this project include:
1. Creating an Outlook rule to collect messages from the client's email domain into an Outlook folder
2. Creating a custom MessageExport profile that will perform these 3 functions:

a. Convert new messages added to a folder into PDF files
b. Delete the messages after they have been converted
c. Perform this operation again in xx minutes.

This is a two part article. This first portion will focus on setting up the Outlook 2013 rule that will accomplish step 1, above. The second part of this article will focus on step 2, setting up MessageExport.

Getting Started

This article assumes that you have Outlook 2013 and the MessageExport add-in for Outlook installed. The steps will be similar for earlier versions of Outlook, but there will be some differences in the location of the rules menu.

The first thing we'll want to do is to create a new folder in Outlook where we will copy email messages that we want to convert into PDF files.

First decide where to place your new folder in your Outlook tree structure. I've decided to create a new folder called "Emails to PDF" beneath my Inbox. To do this I right click on Inbox, select New Folder, and apply my name, and press Enter.

Image shows the Outlook folder structure and a new folder called Email To PDF
Create a new email folder in Outlook 2013

Now that we have our folder, lets setup an Outlook Rule to toss emails in there.


Setting up Outlook Rules


In Outlook 2013, Microsoft Outlook's rules can be accessed by going to File > Outlook Rules &  Alerts.

Image shows the location of Outlook 2013 Rules and Alerts.
Outlook 2013 Rules & Alerts
Click on Rules and Alerts, and a window will open. To create a new Outlook rule, click New Rule.

Click 'New Rule' to create an Outlook rule.

 This will being up a new window. Find "Start from a blank rule" and choose "Apply rule on messages I recieve." Click "Next" to continue.



The following image has quite a bit going on. It is not as difficult as it looks, I promise. I indicated the different areas where you will need to make a selection.

In Step 1, mark the line "with specific words in the recipient's address.

In Step 2, click "specific words."  This will open another window called Search Text.  Enter your client's domain name into this field and click "Add."

Outlook Rules Wizard, Steps 1 and 2.
When you're done, click "OK" to close the Search Text box, and then "Next" in the Rules Wizard.

The Rules Wizard will advance to the next page.  Since we want to move emails from our client to a specific folder, check the box next to "move it to the specified folder."  In Step 2, you'll need to specify the client's domain name. In my example, any email from the domain Megacompany.biz (my client) will be copied to a folder that I specify.  Entering the domain name (not the entire email address) will include all email received from your client. 

Now lets specify the folder where all email from the client will be copied to. Click the word "specified" to open up a second window where you'll choose the folder you created earlier. I selected my folder "Email to PDF."

Image shows the Outlook 2013 Rules Wizard. "Move it to the specified folder" is selected.
Move email to the specified folder

Click ok to close out.

Congratulations! You've just created a Windows Rule to copy all email received from your client into your selected folder.

Click through to part 2 of this article, and we'll show you how to setup the MessageExport add-in for Microsoft Outlook to process the email folder we just created, converting email messages to PDF, and then deleting the messages.

Can PDF Files Harm Your Computer?



You may have noticed that when you download PDF (Portable Document Format) files in Chrome, it will warn you that the file might harm your computer. On the surface, PDFs are seemingly harmless files containing nothing more than text and images. But there's more to PDF files than most people realize. For example, PDF files can contain scripts, embedded media and other such potentially malicious content.

It turns out that the PDF format is actually quite complicated. It isn't just text and images as you might expect. It has a lot of unnecessary features that have opened many security holes in the past. 

JavaScript: PDFs support JavaScript code, which is the same language that is used to display content in your web browser. This allows them to be as dynamic as web pages. JavaScript code in PDF documents can run automatically upon opening the document and have been known to exploit many security holes in Adobe Reader. There are even many Adobe Reader-specific JavaScript APIs, some of which are insecure and have been exploited.

Embedded Flash: Although Flash is a popular technology, there are many insecurities present in Flash - the very reason that Apple has famously refused to allow Flash on its mobile products. Until April 10, 2012, Adobe Reader had its own internal Flash player. Now Adobe Reader uses the version of Flash that is installed on your system. As long as you have the latest version of both Adobe Reader and Flash, you should mostly be free from any security risks.

Launching External Applications: Adobe Reader used to have a feature where it could run any external application in the system by asking for a confirmation through a pop-up window. If you clicked OK, you could have opened a potentially malicious program. Adobe Reader now no longer supports this feature.

Embedded PDF files: Sometimes, a PDF file can contain an embedded malicious PDF file. Although your antivirus would detect the PDF as not malicious, the PDF would launch another embedded malicious PDF after opening it. This fools antivirus scanners because they cannot detect the presence of the hidden PDF file.

Embedded Media: Sometimes, PDFs can contain embedded media players such as QuickTime player or Windows Media Player. Any security holes in such media players can harm your computer.

PDFs are now much safer

Although the PDF format has a lot of features that most people will never use, it is now much safer than it used to be. This is because Adobe has introduced a new sandboxing feature called 'Protected Mode' in Adobe Reader X. This allows Adobe Reader to only access certain parts of the operating system. That means that hackers will have to find two security holes: one in the PDF viewer and another in the sandbox. Only then can they escape the sandbox and do damage to the rest of the computer. This is very similar to Google Chrome's sandboxing feature, where the browser isolates Chrome processes (tabs) from the rest of the operating system.

You can also opt for one of the many third-party PDF readers that don't have the above features. In fact, you don't even need a PDF reader because Chrome and Firefox both have integrated PDF readers which are pretty secure. In case you do opt for a PDF reader, just make sure that it's updated to the latest version and you should be safe.

Saving Outlook Emails to a Single PDF File

Very few software applications will allow you to export multiple Outlook email messages directly to a single PDF file.  MessageExport is a unique add-in for Outlook that performs this task quickly.

First, why would anyone want to export multiple emails into one very large PDF file?  When working with a quantity of emails, preparing email for a special purpose such as litigation, or archiving emails, a single pdf offers the convenience of transportability and organization when compared to managing multiple smaller PDF files.  Organizing emails into a single PDF file makes it easy to share and store messages.

Using MessageExport is straightforward. Just select your email messages from the Outlook mail list, choose the "export profile" you want such as "Export to Single PDF," and then click the blue Export button.

The "single pdf" export profile being selected in MessageExport add-in for Outlook.
MessageExport Add-in installed for Outlook 2010

Encryptomatic LLC, the developers of MessageExport, have made the software very flexible. While it will probably do 95% of what you need right out of the box, you can edit any of its operational settings.  For example the export profile called "Singe PDF - attachments saved to disk," can be edited, changed, or you can build your own export profile. This gives you a lot of flexibility to organize your routine tasks.

For example, you could choose to build an export profile that runs at a regular interval to export new emails into a single pdf file, then adds it to a password protected zip file, gives it a special name, copies it to a Sharepoint library, and then executes a shell command. While most people will not need to do this, this powerful functionality is built into every copy of MessageExport.
Export profiles can also be saved to an xml file, and then imported into another copy of MessageExport. This makes it easy for an administrator or power user to design a complex profile and then share it with other users.

The best way to experience the power of MessageExport is to download a free trial and use it for 15 days. The only limitation of the trial is a 50-email batch processing limit.  After the trial is completed, don't uninstall MessageExport!  It will revert to "free" mode, and continue to let you to export individual email messages to PDF, GIF, TIF, PNG, BMP, MSG, EML and other formats
