Is there a way I can change the location of the Outlook temp folder so when I recieve and attachment and open it from Outlook that it will reside on my desktop or my documents instead of some arbitrarily named temp folder?

Thanks,
JOe K.

Outlook 2010 keeps changing it back.  Any idea why that is happening?

Perhaps it's a setting within Outlook.  I'll snoop around.

It is a security feature the directory that it opens in has limited rights i.e. it is sandboxed

you can save the attachment anywhere but if you preview it it is going to be opened using the internet security settings
