Helllo, we are a small company running Terminal Services on WS 2008 r2.  My goal is simple, because of the resources outlook takes up  I would like to keep there outlook client installed on there local machine.  

The problem I am having is that when they want to send a document from there remote session they have to drag the document over to there local machine.  Is there something similiar to the Printer Redirect that I can set on there profile that will automatically launch there local email client?

Sure I could allow them owa access but its all about the experience.  Any suggestions?

I'm not aware of an existing product but with support for Virtual Channels in the RDP spec there is no reason one couldn't exist.  You'd just need to find someone that can write you the necessary plugins.  I'd imagine that it would require a client and server component for the communication over the virtual channel and possibly an Office Add-In (depends on the implementation).
