    Outlook 2007 File Locks


    Whenever I save a file or message from outlook it puts a file lock on the folder so I can't rename the folder until I close outlook.

    This is actually a lot more annoying than you would think due to the way my work flow is managed, and I have this problem several times a week.

    I'm dubious there is one, but if anyone knows of a cure for what ails me ... thanks.

    Instead of using the Save As dialog, try dragging and dropping the email into the folder you want to save it to.

    I could be wrong, but this *should* be fixed in Outlook 2010.
    The No Ma'am commandments:

    1.) It is O.K. to call hooters 'knockers' and sometimes snack trays
    2.) It is wrong to be French
    3.) It is O.K. to put all bad people in a giant meat grinder
    4.) Lawyers, see rule 3
    5.) It is O.K. to drive a gas guzzler if it helps you get babes
    6.) Everyone should car pool but me
    7.) Bring back the word 'stewardesses'
    8.) Synchronized swimming is not a sport
    9.) Mud wrestling is a sport

    Didn't know that.. I use 2003 and 2007... Figured this was a bug they'd never get worked out. Next time I use a 2010 version, I'll take a gander...
