This is what I was going to suggest, as well.  Any document I get via
email is read-only, regardless of its source software (I use Thunderbird
as my client).

It wasn't always - less recent version of Thunderbird would open attachemnts in read/write mode, and this was a major source of confusion for our users - they would open a document, make changes, just click 'save', then couldn't find their changes... I'd have to help them dig out the modified document from their Temp folder.

I was very happy when Thunderbird changed this so that email attachments were opened in read only mode.
