Each outlook attachment is embedded in your email message file. The moment you open an attachment directly from your email message, the attachment is first extracted and saved as a file in a temporary folder on your disk. The moment that particular email message has been closed and outlook quits, those temporary files will be deleted.
Solution: save your attachment permanently to disk in a folder of your likings and open your file from there.
