Can Someone Solve a Puzzle?

I produced a document in Word. It saved to documents, fine so far. I then attached it to an e-mail and sent. Just went to read it again out of interest and it is saved in Downloads and is not in Documents. Bizarre! Any e-mails I save land in downloads but I saved them in the e-mail folder and if I open the original it saves without me doing anything. I can have anything from two to seven copies of the same one! It started doing this a few months ago and I have no idea why or how to solve it.

Disappointed that there's no help out there.

Thanks anyway

Not everyone visits every day. Some, who have specialist knowledge, only visit once a month, some, maybe not as often as that.

I have not the foggiest idea what is going on in your PC

It might also be an idea to say what email program you are using

"Just went to read it again out of interest and it is saved in Downloads and is not in Documents."

When you saved the Word doc, did you use the 'save as' file command? If so, did you select a sub-folder, or simply save the file into the 'My documents' library?

You say that when you went to read the document again, it was in the Downloads folder - how did you find out about that? In other words, how did you try to open the document?

"Any e-mails I save land in downloads but I saved them in the e-mail folder and if I open the original it saves without me doing anything."

You don't normally have to save emails - outbound mail is normally saved automatically (in the 'Sent' folder) in your email client - the software that you use for email. Likewise, all inbound mail is saved in your inbox when it is downloaded from the mail server. Why are you manually saving emails?

As alanrwood said - what email program do you use?
