I am running Windows 7 and Outlook 2010. I have located the temp folder to be at
C:\Users\RH\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\BNVINBEZ\
But when going through Explorer it stops at C:\Users\RH\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
There is no such subfolder visible as \Content.Outlook
Show hidden files is turned on and hide system files is turned off. Any ideas how I can access the \BNVINBEZ folder? If I open a file from an e-mail and forget to use "Save as", it disappears into \BNVINBEZ. I can see it when saving other files, but not open it.
Thanks,
Ragha

I looked into this and found that if you navigate all the way to Temporary Internet Files and then add the "\Content.Outlook" it will let you in.

I also assume that if you simply type it directly in while in windows explorer it would work fine as well.

So for you it would be:
C:\Users\RH\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook

Thanks for helping me learn that detail myself, very interesting
