Turn on prompts

Tools>Options Attachment Security Options

"There are two levels of attachment security. Access to level 1 files is blocked and can't be changed. When you receive an attachment with a level 2 file type, you will be prompted to save the file to your hard disk. If you use Microsoft Exchange Server, your administrator can add and remove file types for both levels of e-mail security. If a file type is added to both levels, it will be treated as a level 1 file type.

Change the program that starts when you open a file
Many file types in Microsoft Windows are registered to be opened by a particular program. For example, Notepad starts when you want to open a text (.txt) file. You can change the program that starts when you open a file of a certain type.

In My Computer or Windows Explorer, click the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the File Types tab.
In the Registered file types list, click the file type you want to open with a different program, and then click Change.
In the Open With dialog box, select the program you want to use, and then click OK.
Click OK in the Folder Options dialog box. "

We removed the attachment security. We only need to turn on the prompt to ask for save or open the attached files.
