If you are running Windows (I use windows 7) you might try running LibreOffice as administrator. I have had similar issues with other software with insufficient privileges.

if you are running Linux you may not own the file that you got from your email. You say you deleted it, but from my experience in Linux I can delete a file while it's in use. The file is gone from the file browser, but the file will be completely gone once the last process using it closes. It has been awhile since I dumped Ubuntu version of Linux.

If you're running an apple, I have no experience to draw upon.
