There was an error saving attachment, check disk space.

Hi, I hope someone can help me, but I am unable to open attachments in 
windows mail, I get the message saying it is downloading but it doesn't open. 
 

I have tried saving the files instead but get an error message saying check 
my disk space, there should be plenty of space.

I have checked my default programs with no effect.

This has been happening intermittantly for months my attachments were fine 2 
weeks ago.

That problem can be caused by interference from an antivirus=20
program. Which antivirus are you running?
As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus should be turned off,
although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

Email scanning in any antivirus should be disabled, for reasons
explained here:
http://thundercloud.net/infoave/tutorials/email-scanning/index.htm

If no improvement after disabling email scanning, consider upgrading
to Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to suffering bad effects
from overly intrusive antivirus programs:

DPM2010 RC Errors on secondary server.
We have recently upraded our 2007 SP1 Primary DPM server to 2010 RC and it is working perfectly. I've set up a brand new, fresh Windows 2008 R2 Server for the secondary server, and have told it to protect one of the protection groups on the primary server.

open attachments via OWA
Have a curious situation. A user is complaining of cannot open attachments via OWA. That's through our company Exchange server (Exchange 2003). Now, on the very *same* laptop she is using, she can get attachments from another company's OWA. Very strange. What is the normal cause of this issue? What attachment types can't see access? (e.g. doc, mdb, exe, com, bat, .etc) The reason that I ask is that OWA under Exchange 2003 can block access to specific attachment types just like Outlook 2003.

Problem with attachments
Hi, I have a user who attaches multiple attachments e.g. .ppt, .doc, xls and .pdf in an e-mail. But Outlook 2000 randomly changes the order of the attachments and also sometimes deletes one of the attachments. So if the user takes a print on the mail before sending it and then after it has been sent takes a new print from the folder Sent Items the e-mail are changed. The attachments are in unordered and sometimes one is missing. We are using Outlook 2000 on the client and Exchange 5.5 as mail server, every update and sp are installed on the client and server.
