Hi want...I am not sure if I understand your question regarding emails saved in iBooks. Please give nore information. Are you referring to saving A PDF attachment from your email?

No, I am just trying to figure out how to move or save certain emails to the IBooks bookshelf. Seems like a better storage place for saved items.
Thanks

I don't think that is possible. Did you read somewhere that you could? My understanding was that it read PDFs, epubs and books that are "DRM free." So you can save PDF attachments from your email, but not sure about the actual email itself. Unless you are thinking of converting those emails first to a PDF than saving it to iboodks.

Hi
iBooks works great for saving emails. Good idea, thanks! This is for when using a Mac to read mail. I will check the iPad method later.

1. Open the email in Mail.
2. Click Print.
3. See the bottom left, where it says PDF? Click that.
4. See where it says "Save As PDF?" Click that. Save to a known folder such as documents or saved mail.
5. Find the PDF file in the folder.
6. Drag the PDF to the iBooks icon in the Dock.
7. Open iBooks.
8. Find the email PDF. Click it.
9. Create a "New Category from Selection." Call it eMail. After you have the collection, just add the new emails to it.

Now you can put new emails in the iBooks "eMail" collection. Just print to PDF, and drag it to the iBooks icon.
:eek:

I sure don't see any PDF option when I click print with ios7 on my Air. only it searching for a printer which I don't have. On the other hand I can save attachments like pdfs in ibooks or kindle reader, Word docs in Print.

If I'm not mistaken, the member above you is talking about saving an e-mail as a PDF file on a Mac computer. Then, after that work is done, you can put those PDFs into iBooks.
