Outlook asking to save attachments to the local drive when edited

I have one user when they open a Word attachment from an email and they modify it and they click save it asks them to save it to thier HDD instead of just saving the attachment back to the email.

Windows 7 64-bit
Office 2010 64-Bit
SBS Server 2008

That is by design - and quite honestly they should. Saving it back to the email doesn't really work. It ends up getting buried in a hidden TMP folder and usually requires a support person to help them find it.

Go with it and recommend they save it to the My Documents or to their network share.

You got me to think about it and you are correct. If they want to do that I told them to click edit message that will allow them to do what they want to do.
