Outlook msg won't save as html or rtf only text

Outlook msg won't save as html or rtf only text

HI I want to save a .msg file to html, I use Outlook 2010, If I open the message and save as html though Outlook it works absolutely fine but when I try to save a message to html or even rtf through vbscript is refuses to save as anything other than text, I have tried various different ways but with no joy:

Set olapp = CreateObject("outlook.application")
Set oNamespace = olapp.application.GetNamespace("MAPI")
Set oItem = oNamespace.OpenSharedItem("C:\1.msg")

oItem.SaveAs "c:\1.html", olhtml
oItem.Close olDiscard
Set oItem = Nothing
Set oNamespace = Nothing

I Have tried createfromtemplate not using MAPI
A host of different ways but nothing seems to work

Any help would be much appreciated THANKS
