Does anyone know of a good tool for saving emails from within Outlook as PDF docs? I am currently running Outlook 2007 on Win XP.
 
I have PrimoPDF. It mostly works, but gets quite a few errors, especially with equations.
 
I also tried PDFCreator. That was a disaster and they are spammers.
 
Here are a few that are available. Does anyone know anything about any of them?
 

 

Thanks

Firstly, I would uninstall PrimoPDF. Once uninstalled reboot the computer then download the Community version of Bullzip. You can find the Community version about half way down on this page. Don't download the paid version. 

 

You need to have internet connectivity as it will also download and install Ghostscript lite during the install of Bullzip. Once installed you will have a printer called Bullzip in Devices and Printers. You can print from any application using the Bullzip printer.

 

Here is a direct link.

Why is it necessary to uninstall PrimoPDF first? Do they interfere with each other? I'd rather uninstall it after I get something else working. PrimoPDF has problems, but I can usually get it to work. I don't want to be without any tool.

 

PS: Why is "Zip" in their name? I don't see that they offer a zip tool.

I don't know why it was called Bullzip but it does work. There should not be any conflicts but I can't guarantee it as I don't use PrimoPDF. I have never had an issue with Bullzip PDF printer though.

OK. The way you said it, it sounded like you knew there was a problem.

I never had a problem with PrimoPDF until I did. 

 

Thanks for the help. I'll give it a try.
