Renaming Attachments after they have been added to an Email message

Does anyone have any idea how to rename attachments after they have already been attached to a message.  We just upgraded to Exchange 2003 from Exchange 5.5 and we have users who swear they could rename attachments before the upgrade.  I didn't think this was possible, but if some can confirm my belief or disprove me that would be cool.

That would be an Outlook function - not an Exchange function. So unless you have changed the version of Outlook as well then there has been no change in functionality. Renaming attachments after attachment is certainly not a function I have seen.

If they save the attachment they can rename it however they like. As long as it remains attached to the message in Exchange it cannot be renamed. Perhaps they have somehow gotten the two confused.

both answers are correct.  what was happening was that our users where changing the label on the attachment which appears to change the name.  if the attachment is forwarded or saved, then the original name appears.  they were never truly renaming attachments.
