Hi
I have a Laptop running WinXP Pro SP2 all patched. I also have Office Pro 2003 SP2 installed. The problem I am having is the although everything is working as expected, I recennoticed that messages that I receive in Outlook, seem to create a file in the root of the c: drive. These files can be deleted when Outlook is closed and there is no loss of any data from with in the Outlook inbox?(see screen capture) I have searched my system and checked it for spyware, virus or other nasty software, but it is clean. Any ideas what might cause this to happen?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I am getting the same problem everytime I do a send and receive in Outlook these files appear in the C drive and are locked until I close Outlook. I have tried turning off Symantec Spam filtering and Email Virus scanner but the files still appear. On opening them they show the email details including Message source headers etc the file size also corresponse with the size of the actual email received including attachment.

Can anyone help us stop these files, I'm running Outlook 2002 on Windows Xp

Thanks
Madlea
