New to Notes...was wondering if there is a way to have an attachment
automatically launch whenever you double click the mail in the Inbox?  Say
for instance, a URL...

Auto-Open?

You could write a query open event to do that, but why would you want to?
You have no idea what is in the attachment.  It could be virus-ridden, and
launching might activate the virus.  From a user perspective, I would find
it annoying to have an attachment launched before I even read the message.
