I need to change the default open folder location for Outlook 2010. This folder location is accessed when users need to attach a document to an email message. I have found a few resolutions on line that have not worked.

I have tried this and this seems to be the most popular answer from google searches:
Open the registry, navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Options folder, then right-click in the right-hand pane, and choose New>String Value. Name the value “DefaultPath” and enter the location, including drive letter, which you would like to be the default. Restart Outlook, and voila.

Any suggestions?
