I don't understand the message. You need to quote it exactly, without
paraphrasing. You also need to tell us what email program you're using. It
would also be good for you to tell us what kinds of files these attachments
are.

Aside from that, save the attachment to your hard drive. If you are really
sure you want to open it - with the understanding that opening attachments
is one of the prime ways to get infected with malware - then double-click
it and if you have a program installed that can read the type of file, it
will open.

Post back with the missing details and any other questions if you didn't
understand what I wrote. We're here to help. :-)
