Are you saving them as plain text in Outlook? Try copying all the text
in the message, pasting it into a text editor (Notepad will do), saving
as a .txt file, and see what the size is. That should be the minimum,
no-overhead size you can get the message without compression.

If you want to save these messages in Outlook, not as free-standing text
files, just use the text editor to "wash" each message and then paste it
back into a new (Plain Text, of course) Outlook message to yourself.
