What browser are you using ? I think you are using Netscape navigator or communicator. Try the following things

1. Try right clicking the attachment and do a "save as" and save it in a file.

2. If you know the extension of the file and you are using Netscape (Netscape has a set of actions it can take depending on the type of file or extension ) Go to preferences and under one of the options you can set the Mime type and action . Create a new Mime type with the file extension same as the download file and set action as download.

I hope this helps
