Outlook 2000 and Attachement problems

When saving an attachment file in Microsoft Outlook, you may get the following error message:
Can't create file: <Long File Named File -- ONLY LFN> Right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click Properties on the Shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder.
CAUSE
The attachment file has a long file name and the volume, or hard disk on which you have your Temp folder, does not support long file names. Even if the attachment does not appear to have a long file name, this problem can occur if you have previously opened a file with the same name.
RESOLUTION
Move your Temp folder to a volume that supports long file names.

Have you applied SR1 for Office 2000? We had similar problems and applying SR1 resolved the problem. I also apply SP2 for Office now, but that did not seem to affect this problem.

It is a microsoft security feature. If you install a security patch it cause you not to be able to use attachment with certain extentions. We had this problem and I think the only way to get rid of it is to re install outlook. Here is the microsoft link. http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q262/6/31.asp
