Default Disable user prompt while opening document

Hi,
I am using SharePoint 2007.

I have created a e-mail workflow in designer and attached to a document library. In the e-mail content of the mail, I have a link to open the document. when the user clicks on the link to open the document, it asks for username and password. I want to disable user prompt while opening document.(the document can be a word document or excel file).

How to open the document,without getting the username and password prompt..

Thank you.

Well other than opening your document library to anonymous users I don't see that you can do much without control of the users' machines.
If you can make changes, and assume this is an intranet then maybe going into IE > Tools > Internet Options > Security and opening the relevant zone (intranet probably). Then at the bottom you can set it to the second option, Automatic Logon in Intranet Zone. But you can only do this locally or via a group policy. Not sure this setting is repected when opening link from email though.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the reply.
The workflow mail will be send only to users who have access to the document.
So when a mail is send to the valid user, again prompting for username and password, is making the user unhappy.
Is there any way to bypass the user authentication prompt.

Thank you
