If possible, I want to create an outlook email-rule that automatically saves

a .MSG copy of my email. I see there is an option to "perform a custom

action", but I don't know how to create any "custom actions"...

A rule custom action is an external DLL file. You probably would be better

off using the run a script action. The "script" is an Outlook VBA public Sub

that has this argument signature:

Sub myScript(Item As MailItem) ' whatever name you want

The incoming email item is passed to that macro, so from there you can just

use the item's SaveAs method.
