Windows 7: Unable to save Office document - Outlook webmail

Unable to save Office document - Outlook webmail

Hi all,

I've had this recurring issue with Windows 7 and I can't seem to work around it.

I often do a little bit of office work at home and I generally email myself the files I'm interested in while I'm still @ work, sign into my company Outlook webmail when I get home, download the files, and work on them @ home.

Now, I've noticed something strange with Windows 7 and it's baffling the hell outta me!

When I open a file directly from an attachment, I can edit it fine etc., but when I attempt to save it, it says I am unable to save to the specified location! I've tried a "save as" and created a folder with no permission restrictions whatsoever and it still refuses to save! I cannot save it anywhere!!

If I save the attachment first and then edit the saved attachment, all is fine - it seems to me like a user access issue, but I can't be certain.

Any ideas people?

It seems the outlook webmail software is incompatible with Windows 7 - why dont you add an email account to micosoft outlook or start a windows live email account or mozilla firefox's Thunderbird, etc - that way your mail will be sent directly to your home pc.
