Outlook Secure temp folder

The Outlook Secure Temp folder is a super hidden folder, so, unless you know the full path (and it's randomly named folder, you're not finding it. And that's fun when you have a user that's trying to play the 100th copy of a file with the same file name (can you say "voicemail messages"?) and they get an error message.

To find the Secure Temp folder, you have to hop into the registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Outlook\Security

Where the number is the number of your version of Outlook. 15 is Office 2013. The registy entry will give you the file path of the Secure Temp folder, go to it and delete the contents (after you make sure they don't have any attachments open from Outlook they haven't saved elsewhere). 

After that, the countdown to the next 100th file starts!

  1. I have to say that earlier an email conversion was a problem for me. And then a friend of mine recommended me one perfect tool which made my life so much easier. It was eudora to outlook converter software url . I liked because it’s easy to understand how it works. This tool is perfectly suited for people who have never conducted data conversion on their own and don’t know how to proceed with this task. Btw, the software also saves users from having to look for specialized data conversion and paying for the email migration.
