Dragging messages from outlook
Posted on 2004-03-29
If I dragged a message from Outlook 2000 onto my desktop and the file already exists Outlook renamed the file by appending (2) to the filename, Outlook 2003 does not do this. For example, I have an email titled Test. If I drag the message onto my desktop it creates a file called Test.msg if I drag the same message onto my desktop again it creates a file called Test(2).msg and so on. I have now upgraded to Outlook 2003 and if I try the same operation I get prompted to overwrite the existing file. Is it possible to set Outlook 2003 to automatically change filenames like Outlook 200 did.
