encrypted files

By pchlp ·
I have a computer that had some pictures moved around and now, it comes up and ask for a password.
I go into Outlook 2003 and try attach a picture to the email and in the browes box it says,
"Document Manager Encrypted Files".
I select that and then the picture and it says enter, "pass-phase password".
ANy ideas.
thanks in advance

what happens when you open a photo editing program like ms photo eidtor that comes with office, and then try and open the pictures?

word docs can have passwords, pictures normally do not. does your company have the ms security document management features server?

if you can open in photo editor there/s something wrong with outlook

This happens even when I do not use Outlook. I think it something to do with permissions or security of Windows.

What programs are you attempting to open the pictures in?

Is this a stand alone computer or part of a Network?

If this is on a network is this a Peer to Peer Network or is this computer on a Domain with AD and Group Policies set?

If this is on a network are the files stored locally or remotely that means are they on this computer or on a File Server or other network share?

Generally speaking if you have the correct permissions you are not asked for a password for encrypted files of any kind but this can be set on a Domain that is File Sharing through either the AD or Group Policies depending on how the Network Admin has setup the system.
