Save attachments from Outlook to network location Users with delete deny permission. Corrupting attachment.

Posted on 2014-08-14

We are having network share, where users have permission to save and read files and deny permission for deleting.
Copying files to location Works fine,

Problem is when User tries to save attachment from Outlook. "Save as" to this location. It returns error that it has no permission to change files on this location.
Then it creates files which is corrupted and size of 0 KB.

I am attaching share settings for this user group.

Any idea how to solve it?

    Outlook is creating a file first (0 bytes sized) and then moves/copies the attachment there.

    Because deleting and changing are in essence the same (modify) the save of the attachments is not working.

    Creating a temporary folder for extracting and then moving from that temporary folder to the destination will work.

    Yes, moving will work, as long as you don't want to edit the files afterwards on the network share.

    You can also use free Save Attachments utility for that. You can configure it so it will save attachments with one click to your share.
