How do you change the default insert file path in outlook 2003? Instead of
going to "My Documents" all the time I want to go to a netwotk share when I
need to attach a file to an email. How can this be changed?

The only way is to change the location My Documents uses.

I know that I am lete to this one but I had the same question for Outlook
2007. The solution is simple for me. I am using my Word 2007 as my editor
so I openerd Word and clicked on the Office button at the top left of the
screen, went to Word Options - Save and changed the "Default File Location".
The reults were reflected in Outlook when I click on the atch file icon.

Outlook tends to remember the last used location, so if you select a new
folder from within outlook, it will use it until you change it. For this
reason, I prefer to put the folders on the places bar (xp) or favorites list
(vista/win7) - my most used folders are always 1 click away.
