OWA (Exchange 2000) File Attachments

We have recently implemented AD, including Exchange 2000 with OWA.

Couple of questions:

1.  When I click on a link to open an Excel file attachment, the spreadsheet opens in my web browser.  I would rather it opened in the local version of Excel.  Is there a setting that will allow me to do this?

2.  Is there a setting for other types of file attachments?

Thanks for your help!

to my knowledge there is no security implemented on attachments in OWA. Exchange 2003 OWA is much closer to Outlook now, and this is not an issue. What SP level are you on for Server and Exchange?

You have to change the settings on the client side.

From Windows Explorer, Tools, Folder Options, File Types, select the extension "xls", Advanced, uncheck "Browse in same windows".

For other types of file attachments, goto the respective file extensions as above.
