Outlook 2003 Rich text adding attachment result on : Error! Not a valid embedded object.

I have 3 terminal servers 2003 R2 SP2 with MS Office 2003 SP2. The Outlook users have this message when they add an atachement, using any method to a email in rich text using MS Word as mail editor :

Error! Not a valid embedded object.

If MS Word is not the mail editor, the attachement is ok.
if MS Word is the editor and the mail is in HTML there is no problem.

Any idea ??

Many thanks,

Finally found the problem. Is the roaming cache settings of internet explorer.

To solve it, use this registry fix :


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

Or use the internet explorer admin it to re deploy IE with this parameter disabled
