    I am used to Outlook Express and when saving an incoming
    message I have the choice of which folder to save it to.

    Now I have Windows Live Mail and figure it must be the same in
    this regard, but I cant find any choice other than ‘Save’ or ‘Save as File’.

    So, when I click ‘Save’ it ends up in the Draft folder and
    then I have to drag it to the folder I really want it in. How do I save to other folders than the Draft one?

    It's a long time since i used Livemail but have you checked under settings? You might find a settig to change the default download folder or similar?

    This FAQ 'might' be of some help too...

    Been searching different sections of that link. Have yet to find anything that even mentions Saving messages. Maybe I missed it. If anyone knows the answer, that would be wonderful.

    Hmm... well if I get a message in Outlook but would like it in a different folder I use the Move command found via right clicking said message. If you want certain messages to go to certain folders why not create a 'rule'. See the above guide for further info on both options I've mentioned.

    When you click "save file as" you should see a window popup or a drop down menu to tell it where to save it too.
