Hi :)
Congrats :)) Nicely done :)  

Also thanks for letting us know you fixed it.  There seemed to be some sort of password issue 
somewhere along the way but hopefully you managed to dodge that using this method.  
Good luck and regards from  
Tom :)

saving a copy, under file, worked to create a writable version, exact
fascimile (unlike cutting and pasting).

Thank you all for your help

Now the confusion is that MS Outlook does allow this behaviour so people
assume that's the way it should be done.  Even though they lose files they
still grumble about the idea of having to download to a known location.
  Something that did catch their attention was the threading.  MS Outlook
just can't manage it.

Tom :)

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.
