If you double click on the message in your inbox which contains the attachment (this opens it in a different window) it should show the attachment directly under the subject line...

RIGHT-click on the attachment, and click on "Save As".

It should ask you what you want to name the file. On this screen, you can:

1. change the underscore _ to a period .
2. remove the ".zzz" at the end.
3. select where you want to save the file at the top of the screen where it says "Save In:". (Your "Desktop" is probably the easiest).
4. Click "Save" at the bottom.

As always, we encourage you to be absolutely sure the file is not infected by double-checking with the sender that they intended to send that attachment to you, and/or scanning the file with an up-to-date anti-virus program.
