Default Hello all! Newbie here with a queston

Is it possible to have a subfolder off your inbox that links to your local hard drive.

I want to have my user stay in the outlook interface and be able to just drag emails and or attachments from the inbox to another folder that will save it to a local directory i.e. c:\Mail attachments.

I know i know may sound crazy because "File" "Save as"and all the other ways to save emails are pretty easy.I just want to make it even simpler.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Create a PST file...

1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Personal Folder File (.pst).

2. In the Save in list, click the folder you ant to save the file in (UCS recommends putting this file in the My Documents folder to make it easier to locate for backup purposes.

3. In the File name box, type a name to describe the file, and then click Create.

4. In the Name box, type the name you want displayed in your Outlook Folder List view.

5. Leave the rest of the options at their default selections and click OK.

6. You will see the folder in your Folder List view. You may create new folders under this folder to organize your email on your local machine.

Personal folders are saved with the extension .pst, and the folder items remain on your computer, not on the server. If you use another computer or access your email via the web interface, you will not be able to see items stored in the personal folders.
