    everyone? i know outlook2007 can be set to open recieved attachments as read only
    there was a hotfix to make it do just that.
    To make all e-mail attachments open in Read-only format, apply hotfix 953925, and then configure the OpenAttachmentsReadOnly registry entry to enable the hotfix. To do this, follow these steps.
    perhaps the people you are sending to have that set
    also it was a bug in earlier versions perhaps your reciprients have older versions

    mind you you havent said if they are using outlook at all
