Thanks for your reply to my email message. The problem I had was that my registry string ended with: "c:\Documents and Settings\"username"\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.outlook However, there was no name for the Outlooksecuretempfolder file shown and also no evidence of any folder called "Content.outlook" under \Temporary Internet Files\ !! Here's how I found the files after some added research: First, knowing your version of windows, select from the below address strings: Windows XP C:\documents and settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook Windows Vista C:\Users\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook Copy/paste the appropriate string into your “Start” -> “Run” command in XP or Vista, click OK and you will see your missing folder! (to add the “run” command to your Vista Start bar, right-click on Start button -> properties -> customize -> scroll down and select “Run command” -> OK) Once you find the very hidden Outlook secure temp folder (and your missing files) copy the complete folder’s string address from the address bar and make a desktop shortcut to the Outlook secure temp folder. Now go to your desktop, right-click your mouse, select -> New -> Shortcut -> paste in the folder address -> name the folder -> click OK You now have a shortcut on your desktop to your hidden outlook email attachment files !!! As postscript to this info, if you go to your registry key : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Security In the right hand view pane should be an entry called "OutlookSecureTempFolder" IF... you double-click that entry to open edit mode, you will find your outlook temp folder's address string, which can be copied and pasted into your address bar.
