I have a computer on a corporate network that has no path to the OLK directory

the path in the registery is listed as c:\doc and setting\user\loc

settings\temporary internet files. It does not have the added olkxxx

directory listed.

If I browse the temporary internet files it contains only cookies and a few

cached IE files...no documents.

My question is are they being saved, and if so where. It seems that no olk

directory is being generated. Is this controlable by Outlook, I dont think I

have seen a setting relating to it in the past.

Thanks in advance

The location could have been modified by your email admin so that the folder

is cleared when you clear your Temporary Internet files.

The setting is only controllable via the registry. Deleting the key will

generate a new one with a reference to an OLK folder as soon as you open

your first attachment from within Outlook. Verify with your system admin

what the intention of the change was.

You can't see the files because an Explorer extension kicks in and forces

the display to only show the urls, time, .etc that is relevant to Internet

Explorer. You can see the files if you are comfortable in working with a

DOS prompt or some sort of 3rd party file explorer.

Other than that, I have never seen a setup truncate the location. Since you

are working in a corporate environment, I am guessing that the pc support

gods have configured it this way for a reason. Have you talked with them to

determine why and/or explain what issues you are having?

Thanks Roady and neo for the info.

There is no system policy in place because the olk directory exisits on any

other machine that I have looked on. I didn't think to look in DOS for the

files within temp internet, I can try that.

I will delete the reg key and see if this recreates the olk folder.

Thanks again..helpfull information!
