Entourage and AppleScript Question

May I please ask a question? I am trying to "Save As" export an email message from Entourage to a folder on my computer desktop by using AppleScript. I found the script below that moves the message from the inbox to a folder in Entourage but I just do not know enough to alter it to get the desired result. My hard drive is called "G4 HD" and the Desktop folder is called "PanTran" and the title of the file should be the same as the email subject. I would like to select the first email in the inbox list each time. (Really just like a Save As command that lets me end up with a "Simple Text Document" of the original email) May I please ask for your help. Here is a script that moves within the app but does not export outside the application. I am sorry to trouble you but my knowledge is too limited. Please, may I ask for your help.
