Microsoft Office Outlook Error need help

This error happens because of an attachment you opened within Microsoft Windows Outlook. When you open an attachment directly within Microsoft Windows Outlook, Outlook creates a copy of that file in a hidden temp folder in your hard drive before a program actually opens it. All files have identical names varies only in the number after it, for example, msg0000.wav, voicemail(1).wav, voicemessage.wav.

In certain circumstances this file in temp folder is not deleted automatically after closing the attachment. Once it reaches 100, Microsoft Office Outlook throws the error below.

When this happens, you have to clean the temp folder before you can open another attachment again. The location of the temp folder is unique and also hidden. To open the temp folder, you need to go to the Windows registry. To do this, click Start, Run, type without quotes “regedit” then hit Enter. Go to this location in the registry: [HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice<version>OutlookSecurity]. Next, double-click OutlookSecureTempFolder.

Under “Value data”, copy the path and then click Cancel. Go to My Computer or open Windows Explorer then paste it in the address bar then hit Enter. You will then see a bunch of temporary files. Locate the appropriate voicemail messages then delete them all. You will now be good for one more 100 messages.
