We are receiving the attached prompt when opening file attachments in Outlook 2013. We have disabled protected view via GPO for Office 2013 applications, but cannot figure out how to rid this prompt via GPO.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Thanks. That worked, except now the attachments are opening in "read-only" Any way to disable that so that documents do not open in read-only?
