I am aware that there is a potential risk of software email client bug that can make such tagging ineffectual, I just would like to offer it to the customers. I am also very aware that some people just couldn't resist opening up the attachment :-) and need to protect themselves from themselves.

I am extremely conservative in not losing any potential emails or benign attachments and thus see that the third choice might be preferable to some customers.
