E-mail attachments opening

Hi, A colleague sent me a document as an e-mail attachment for inclusion in a newsletter. As is usual I clicked on the attachment to save it to disc so that it could be scanned for viruses etc. Unfortunately I wasn't given the option of saving to disc, the attachment opened right away which is rather frightening given the vast amount of viruses flying around. This is the first time that I have come across this. Is it to do with the way he has his mail options set up? Cheers, Bill.

Don't know why it happened, but I suggest you right click on any attachment you want to save to disc. That way a menu will drop down offering "Save as".
