I have a client who has been using Pegasus mail for some time before we moved them on to SBS2003 and Outlook. One thing they appear to be missing is a facility that when an email is printed out for filing the location of the attachmant was noted on the footer of the page i.e.  H:\ Kevin's docs\ glatt washroom\ H&S 161106. Can this be done in Outlook?

Many Thanks Simon

Greetings, Simon.

I've never used Pegasus mail, so I know nothing about how it works.  Outlook attachments are embeded in the message object itself, they don't have a "location" that equates to a file path.  They would only have that once they've been detached and saved.  

Cheers!

Hi and thanks for the prompt reply. Once the attached file has been saved and the message is printed out is there no way the location can be stamped on to the email? I thought of using the Journal but I dont know what this does - any ideas?

Cheers Simon

Outlook neither knows nor cares where the attachment was saved to.  It has no mechanism for recording this information.  The only solution is to use a macro to save the attachments and have it record the location saved to in the body of the message.  Something like the solution I demonstrated in this question: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/MS_Office/Outlook/Q_21808541.html

The difference would be that in that question we were keying on date and processing all messages.  For your situation we'd change the code to only process the current message.
