When you send something as an attachment in an email, and the recipient clicks on the file IN the email (without saving the file somewhere on his machine first), then the computer opens the file as a "temporary" creature in a "temporary" place.  That "temporary" file is always "read only".  If the user can and does make any changes and wants to save the result, he cannot just "save" the result.  Instead, he must choose "save as", and give the file a permanent home and name on his machine.

Hope that helps,

When I send a spreadsheet (xxx.ods) as an attachment in an email (I use
Thunderbird), it is received as a "Read-Only" file.  The only Options that I
know of don't appear to force it to be Read-Only (see attached). So how do I
disable this restriction?
