Saving files to local computer with Remote Desktop connection

The owner of our company uses Verizon Wireless Broadband, then connects to our corporate VPN
for Outlook 2003.  His computer locks up a lot when he is downloading attachments.
I set up a Terminal Server profile for him and on the Remote Desktop Connection connection, asked
it to bring the Local Resources to the Terminal Server desktop on the RDP.
The only problem is that when you try to access the local computer that is shown as TSCLIENT,
it is VERY slow.  He doesn't want to save his files to the server, then to his computer because
that is a lot of file management.
Is there a better solution?

While using TS and trying to connect to Local machine the connectiong will be slow as it uses the Internet connection to transfer all the files. If the files are quite large than it will "kill" the connection.

If he needs to send files as attachments from Outlook then Install Outlook on his Local machine. If he needs to send stuff he wont have to connect to TS anymore.

To transfer the files between the Client Machine and a Terminal Serevr it will always be slow. Unless of course both the Server and Client are using Ultra Fast Internet :P Latency will also impact the speed.

Hope this helps.

He already has Outlook on his local machine and it works fine on our network.
The slowness comes into play when he is not onsite and using broadband internet access.
Our solution was to set him up to logon to our Terminal Server with it's own Outlook profile.
He will have to save his files to a folder on the Terminal Server, then transfer his files to
his local computer when he is re-connected to our network.
