    Storing Attachment (Outlook 2003)

    When a student sends me a file attached to e-mail, it reaches me in an "OKL" folder. To save it ("save as..") in a folder that is imbedded in the folder of the class I'm teaching, I have to go "up the tree" three clicks and back down another "branch" with 4 clicks. Is there an easier way of doing this?

    That location is the temporary location for the file when opened as an attachment. There's no built in way around the way Outlook operates when opening a file from an attachment. You can change the default attachment open location in the registry, or to bypass the default OLK* location, save the file without opening it, then open it from the application. If you work with a lot of attachments, you might look at some of the attachment management applications such as at MAPILABS, or, ahem, <post#=443421>post 443421</post#>.

    Try a shortcut. If you were to go 3 clicks down the proper branch, you could select the destination folder, right-click and choose Create Shortcut. Select and cut the shortcut and use Back until you return to the Outlook cache folder, then paste. Hopefully now a double-click will take you straight where you want to go. Does it?

    You could add a standard folder for detached files to "My Places".
