    Saving email attachments

    When trying to save an email attachment (from Outlook 2007) I am getting a message about not having permission to save to this location - contact my administrator. This is saving to any location on my home computer. I am the administrator and mine is the only account - apart from Administrator.

    Odd thing is that W2007 puts a file in the selected location albeit with 0Kb. If I try the operation again, to the same location, the file saves OK.

    Any ideas what is going on here, please?

    Context menu doesn't give that option. Plus I've now found that it does the same thing if I'm working in a document that wasn't an attachment.
