The attachment and choose "save attachment"

Put it somewhere you can find it and try opening it from there.

Remove the tick from the box saying "Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus"

click here

The option blocks access to pretty much all files except images, so it's a good idea to turn this off only if you have decent, up to date AV software

I should add that you'll find this option in Tools / Options / Security
