    I'm wondering where the attachments folder is in outlook, officexp version. I want to access received attachments without going back to the email they came from, within outlook. Ive searched high and low, cant find where the heck they are stored.

    Hi, I meant to come back to this, but my system crashed, and funnily enough, I thought I had answered it already.

    Anyway, the attachment is stored within the OUtlook folder it is contained in, and you can't access it in any way except via Outlook.

    When the attachment is opened, it is opened in a temp folder, but that is there only for a short duration.

    If you want to access these attachments without having to go through Outlook, then I suggest getting in the habit of saving them in a folder of their own, outside of Outlook.
