Executing Attachments

If the user tries to open or double-click on an executable attachment, then there may be times when the user should be asked to confirm this operation. Both the name of the attachment and the name of the action being taken on the attachment should be variables. An example error message follows:

"Invitation" is an executable attachment. Do you want to Run it?
 Buttons: Run, Cancel, Help
