Documents not saving onto Sharepoint library via Outlook 2010
Posted on 2011-02-22
We use the BPOS flavour of Sharepoint (which is currently 2007) - And i want to access my document library via Outlook 2010 so i can work offline with them.
Connecting works fine and i can access all the documents and sub folders perfectly. The issue i am getting is that when i open a doc within Outlook , and then edit it, when i go to save it asks me where to save a "copy" on my local drive. Of course i dont want that, i want to be able to save into the same file and then have it synced on the next send and receive.
I notice that when i open the file its in read only format and i dont get the option of edit offline like i expected....
Really stumped as to why i am getting this when all indications on tutorials say its easy to sync Outlook 2007/10 with Sharepoint 07/10.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
