Hi,

I am using Outlook 2002 on a Windows 7 Ultimate platform. I have two queries:

1. My password is not being saved. Everytime I open Outlook I have to select Tools--Email accounts--View or change existing Email accounts--Change and then enter the password. Only then can I send or recieve emails. If I close Outlook I have to repeat the above steps once again as my password is not being stored.

2.Every time I open an attachment Outlook gives a message:

"What would you like to do with this file:

Open it

Save it to disk"

Even if I uncheck "always ask before opening this type of file" it still continues to do so the next time I open the same type of attachment. I want the default to be only to "open the file".

Please help.

The password problem is a limitation of outlook 2002 on windows 7 or vista. See outlook on windows 7 for a utility that will help with the password.

What value do you have in the registry key at HHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} ? That is the key that holds the open / save dialog 'don't ask again' preference.
 
Dear Diane,

Thanks for the reply. The solution for the password problem is too complicated for a layman user like me. I guess i will live with entering the password every time i open Outlook.

In relation to my second problem I am unable to find Shel I|AttachmentExecute\....

When I oppen my Registry key using regedit I get HHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shel

Under Shel there are 3 options :

1. Assosiation

2. BagMRU

3. Bags

Nowhere do I find AttachmentExecute.

Please guide

Dear Diane,

I would like to bring the matter to your notice again. The registry path suggested by you does not seem to be correct. Pl help with the correct path. Sorry for all the trouble.

My memory is fuzzy (heck I'm not even sure why I didn't mention this before)- but see http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/restore-or-hide-the-open-save-dialog/ - this is probably what you need, not the attachment execute key. Sorry for the wild goose chase. There is a 'do it for me' that will add the office document keys to your registry. I don't know if its UAC or Outlook 2002 compatibility issues that are causing your problem.

I opened a file in IE that brought up the save / open dialog and the key was set when i told it to always use my preference.

The key looks like this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]

"WinZip"=hex(0):
