I have only recently purchased my Note 4. This is the first time I tried opening/ preview an
email attachment I get the following message on screen "No application can perform this action"
What application do I need to perform this task?

It depends on what the attachment is. You have to have an app installed that can handle the file type of the attachment, a particular video format, a particular audio format, etc..

You may need to download "rar" if it is a compressed file and Adobe pdf for "pdf" files.. those are the two main ones I had to download that did not come with my device.
