    OLK3F6 (2002 SP3)

    I used to have a folder "Cocuments and SettingsHardworkerLocal SettingsTemporary Internet FilesOLK3F6" in which I could find recently opened attachments. It isn't there anymore. Maybe IE7 took it away? I searched my entire C: drive for some recently opened attachments, but couldn't find any.

    For some reason, Outlook's 'temp' folder remains exceedingly well hidden - at least for me it does! - despite Explorer set to show hidden and system files.

    If you are sure that is the address, paste or type it into Windows Explorer address bar and see if it opens up.

    In addition to Leif's reply: the location of Outlook's temporary storage for attachments is notfixed; it can change spontaneously.
    You can look up and set its location in the Windows registry, in the OutlookSecureTempFolder value in the HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice10.0Outloo kSecurity key.

    Thanks guys. Leifs suggestion works. Strange--- I have a shortcut on my desktop that points to this foler, and it worked fine for ages. Double click and I was there. That shortcut doesn't work anymore, nor did a new one that I just created. I've never had the experience with the location being changed, but now I know where to look. Thanks!

    You could try sending yourself a document. When you open the attachment (e.g., in Word), use File>Properties, General tab to get the location of the secret folder.
