    Workbooks attached to emails come as READ ONLY

    Anyone have any ideas why when I receive a workbook that comes as an attachment to an email it will
    frequently come as a READ ONLY.

    I've checked with the senders and they say they'e not doing it overtly.

    Thanks.

    I should have mentioned I'm on a Mac. I can't find anywhere to apply the fix mentioned.
    I am using Outlook 14.1.3.

    You could check at Ron DeBruin's site, he has some pretty extensive stuff on Excel/Mail and Macs:
