Outlook locks file after attaching to an email

P: 26
One of my users sent me an email with an attachment. Once she sent the email, she tried to move/rename the file and it said it was locked or currently in use. She didn't have it open or anything and the email she attached it to was successfully sent but when she closed Outlook completely, the file was unlocked and she was able to move/rename it.

Why is Outlook locking files that are attached to emails and is there a way to stop this?

Config:
Outlook 2007
Windows 7 64-bit
