Folder Redirection, My Documents and saving attachments in Outlook

    I have just configured Folder redirection of My Documents and the Desktop via
    Group Policy for a user. I can copy files to the My Documents folder and the
    desktop folder via Explorer or within the Office Package. However, they
    cannot save a document when they open it from Outlook as an attachment. The
    user is sent an email with a Word doc attached. They open the attachment from
    within Outlook, make a change and then try to save to their My Documents but
    get "Access Denied". Creator/Owner has full rights to the Folder Redirection.
    How can I correct this? Users like to open the document from within their
    outlook to see whether it is worth saving.

    The person who will create the file has to have enough permission at the
    parent directory to CREATE the file -- in order to become creator owner
    of that new file and have those permissions.

    They can create the file with no issues from Word, Excel or through explorer
    and place the file on the desktop. It is only through Outlook when viewing
    and trying to save the attachment that they receive "Access Denied".

    Sounds like they are being blocked from creating a file in either/both of
    Temp directory (viewing incoming attachment) or My Documents (for saving).

    IN both cases they must be able to create new file in that directory AND
    share permissions if it is on a network.

    The My Documents is being redirected to the server. I am not sure if it
    caches somewhere before moving to the server in Folder Redirection. Users are
    admins of the local pc. They can save to the drive and to My Documents
    through explorer. They just can't save from with in Outlook.

    Did you ever find a solution to this problem? I am having the same issue.
