SYMPTOMS

If you open an e-mail message attachment in the reading pane in Microsoft Office Outlook 2003, the attachment opens as read-only.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs because the attachment handling function changed in Outlook 2003 to avoid data loss.

WORKAROUND

To work around this behavior, do not open the attachment in the reading pane. Instead, double-click the e-mail message, and then open the attachment.
