    Exchange 2007 - Default Attachment Temp Save location ?

    A Common problem we have here:

    Teacher sends a class of students a DOCX file to work on via email.....
    The students go into their email and open the file and begin working on it.....
    The end of the lesson they hit save....
    Next week... Document has been lost as it was saved to the temp folder.

    Does anyone know if it is possible for the temp attachment opening location can be moved to thier home drive?
    I know the teachers just have to say "Right open it then Save As.." but they dont.

    Been looking at
    OutlookSecureTempFolder in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\O utlook\Security

    Anyone already sorted this before I carry on?

    Isn't it
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
    ? And you set that to the folder,

    We have this problem all the time with students chosing Open from files thay have emailed themselves, usually it is from Webmail though as we don't allow them to use outlook. I would love a solution to prevent the open option on downloads in IE to make them save to MyDocs
