Project Description

I am using Microsoft Outlook 2007 as my email client, running under Windows 7

Customers send me Microsoft Word (.doc) file attachments every day.

THE PROBLEM: EVERY time I receive an email with a .doc attachment, and I click on the attachment to open the file, Outlook 2007 displays a dialog box that says "You should only open attachments from a trustworthy source". It also displays a "check box" that says "Always ask before opening this type of file" . . . which is "checked", but the check box is GRAYED-OUT (which means I can not UN-check it).

To get Outlook to open the document, I have to then make an ADDITIONAL (time-wasting) click on the "OPEN THE FILE" button. (Useless click, useless waste of my time).

Typical Microsoft arrogance. ("We know what's best for you . . . let Big Brother handle your PC security . . . you trust US, don't you?) Sorry, Steve Balmer . . no, I don't!

WANTED: I would like Outlook to do what I SAY *immediately* when I double-click on a Microsoft Word file attachment . . . to open it IMMEDIATELY . . . withOUT this bullshit "security" dialog warning each time.

I posted an inquiry on the Outlook 2007 "Microsoft" user forums - - but nobody answered. (Probably too busy with holiday stuff?). So I'd be happy to pay somebody on GAF who knows the answer.
