Not clear. Download what from where? Do you really understand how attachment works? Nothing is really "attached", this is just a part of e-mail message packet, embedded into it as a e-mail "part".
Link to what? If for an external resource, this is just an HTML anchor...

Email doesn't support such a facility. There is no way for you to know if the recipient downloaded the attachment or not.

The only way you could possibly know is if your attachment wasn't attached to the email, but posted to a website and you sent the recipient a link to the attachment on the website.

This technique is commonly used by spammers, so it's not really a good thing to do.

You seriously can't put together a simple HTML page with a link in it?

That's the body of your email message. It's that simple.
