Benefits of backup Outlook email to PDF:

Part 1How to Convert Outlook Email to PDF with Adobe Acrobat

There are two ways you can go about changing the default PDF viewer in Windows 10 – using the File Explorer or via the Control Panel. Both are easy to do if you follow these steps:

Step 1. Install Adobe Acrobat

Just like Microsoft Office, if you install Adobe Acrobat later than the installation of Microsoft Outlook, a quick access to Adobe Acrobat is automatically inserted into Outlook. Launch Outlook and click on Adobe Acrobat on the toolbar. And then you can see two options: Attach as Adobe PDF & Attach as Secured Adobe PDF. Attach as Adobe PDF means every attachment, PowerPoint, Word, Text, etc, is going to be saved as PDF.

Attach as Secured Adobe PDF implies you're going to save document and attachment as secured PDF, which means these files are protected from opening, copying or printing.

Step 2. Save Outlook E-mails to PDF

Launch Outlook and then click Adobe Acrobat on the toolbar. On the submenu, you can see four tabs: Selected Messages, Selected Folders, Change Conversion Settings and Setup Automatic Archival. From here you have two ways to convert Outlook emails to PDF files.

Convert selected messages to PDF: Under Selected Messages, select Create New PDF or Append to Existing PDF. If you have a message which keeps update, you might need to append to existing PDF, which makes the message a complete one. Select the email you need to save as PDF and right-click on it. Navigate to "Convert to Adobe PDF" and click on, then name the PDF and click "Save". Adobe Acrobat could save the email as well as the attachment right away.

Convert selected message folder to PDF: To save time, you should save all the emails you'd like to convert to PDF in a folder. Then click the click the Selected Folders on the tool bar and then click on the folder to begin the process of saving Outlook messages to PDF files.

After you save Outlook emails to PDF files, they will be opened in Adobe Acrobat like emails. You can click on any of them to see the whole message and click on the hyperlink of the attachment to open the attachment in another window. It is pretty cool to see all the emails are arranged so perfectly.
