Editing an attachment

By gerrie ·
When I edit an attachment just before sending an email, the edited document is sent to the recipient, but even if I save that document the changes to the original document is lost. How do I get to save the changes to the original document in the default file location and not in a temp folder somewhere in documents and settings ?

The person sending the file should be sending you the shortcut, not the file.

When you (or your coworker) go to insert an attachment to an e-mail select the option that says "Insert As" and then choose "shortcut" versus the sending the actual file.

If you receive an attachment in an email you need to save it down to your computer somewhere before editing. By default when you open an attachment up from an email it is copied to a temporary folder in your user profile. When you close the email the temproary file is deleted.

So... You open the attachement and it opens froma a temp folder. You edit it. You send it off to whomever. Then you save and close the attachement. The you close the email and boom, the meil gets rid of the temporary file. This is by design.

Just make sure to save the attachment somewhere like My Documents before editing.
