Saving amended email attachments back to original email
Posted on 2014-02-24
I know that this is wrong, and I know it shouldn't be done. I have a user who won't be told that it's wrong.
He used Windows XP, Outlook 2007 and Word/Excel 2007, would receive a document as an email attachment, edit it, and then save the amended document back to the original email.
Yes, that means the email he has in his Inbox is not now the same as the one he was sent.
He has now upgraded to Office 2013 with Windows 7. Rightly, opening an attachment now will not let him save the temporary file he is viewing and working on, and rightly, it won't allow him to save that amended temporary file back into the email.
However, he insists that his workflow requires that it does.
Is anyone aware of a way of having Office 2013 applications behave as Office 2007 and before did?
