Hyperlink Outlook 07

I have a user who wants to put multiple hyperlinks in an email from one folder location but when he clicks on the button for the hyperlink it always defaults to the My Documents folder to start from.  I did it in Outlook 03 and it does the same thing.  I was wondering if there is a way to set it to start from the last file location clicked on?  The folder locations are on  a shared network drive.

A Hyperlink should go directly to the File it is attached to.

Is this not happening?

Or are you just talking about when he goes to insert the hyperlink the starting point to browse for the files is in My Documents?

If this is the case, in this Hyperlink window you should also see an option for Recent Files. This may help a bit.

Otherwise, Outlook and all other Office Applications default to My Documents.
You can change this location by editing a registry entry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders\Personal

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\Personal

However this changes it for all Applications
