My company has a computer system that sends some .ASP files attached to the emails. I've seen other people opening those files straight from Outlook by double clicking them.

In my case, I try to double click the attached file but instead of opening the file, it shows a window to save the file in the PC.

How can I configure Outlook 2007 to open this file by making double click on it?

as a remark, once I save the file in Desktop, if I double click it, it opens the web-browser and shows the info with no problem.
I've been told that the file is HTML, but only the extension is ASP.

In advance, thank you very much!
