    Hi,

    I create a Public Folder (Task Items) in Outlook 2003 and then attach one Excel Sheet in it.

    I am the OWNER of the folder.

    If I just click on the attachment and press the DEL button then the file gets DELETED.

    I don't want that to happen. I want to BLOCK my rights of DELETING THE attachment.

    How should I go about it?

    Regards,

    Yps

    If you are indeed the owner of this folder then you should be able to right-click on i and go to permissions. From here you can give users certain rights and permissions. I would give the users reviewer rights if you just want them to read the e-mails and attached items as well.

    But I have the OWNER role and I want to write on the files regularly but I dont want to delete the attachment by mistake too. How to avoid that? I want to revoke DELETE rights (of attachments) of the OWNER too.

    Ummm... I dont think thats possible. At some point the owner might want to delete the file - "Nothing lasts forever" . So the Deleted Items folder is the only reprieve.

    I suggest you rather backup this folder on a timely basis.
