    If transformation has been created in PDI 4.4 and it contains step "Email Message Input" - it is not possible to save any changes for it in PDI 5.1. It happens in both cases when repository is file-based or database. 1. Create a transformation containing "Email Messages Input" step in PDI 4.4 or you can use transformation attached to this case. 2. Open it in PDI 5.1 ( I tested on PDI CE 5.1 CI build #854 downloaded from http://ci.pentaho.com/view/Data%20Integration/job/Kettle/854/) 3. Click "Save" or "Save As".
