Can't open attachments in Evolution

HI, I'm running Evolution 1.2.2 on Suse 8.2. When I attempt to save an attachment to my home directory /home/keisa, I get this:

Error while 'Saving attachment':

Cannot create outpt file:/home/Query5.xls:
Permission denied.

Any ideas?

The error looks like it is not trying to save to /home/keisa but /home. You probably won't be able to write to that directory unless you are root. Double check and make sure you are trying to save to /home/keisa.
