It looks like Outlook 2003 tries to save the attachment in the User's My Documents folder. Where do your folks want to save them instead? Are they wanting to change their default My Documents folder?

if this is a domain structure...you can also use group policy to force the my documents redirect as well....i do this for all my users because that's where they always decide to save stuff...to My documents...well if their hard drive dies...then so do the documents....so i redirect that folder to their user's drive on a file server...so that the file get's backed up on tape every night...much more secure
Okay, since you don't want to do the registry edit, the easiest way I can think quickly is to redirect My Documents for those users. On each machine, right click My Documents, Properties. Click the "Move" button, then pick the new location.

user configuration > windows settings> folder redirection > my documents > properties >
then you could either do advanced...which lets you make this setting per user group...just in case each group needs a diff location
or you can do basic...which allows you to make the setting the same for everyone....you can direct the folder to a specific folder (such as \\servername\sharename\%username%)...or to the user's home folder...which would be set in active directory in their user profiles.

Its going to be a couple of days before I can implement this but the user settings sound like what I was looking for!
Thanks for saving me a couple days worth of running around.
