email attachments opening in notepad, not word

  rhyddingman 18:46 16 Dec 04

Recently I have found that MSWord attachments to emails have opened in Notepad, with several lines of gobblydegook followed by some unformatted text. I am using XP Home, with ZoneAlarm security suite. Can anyone suggest why I can't see attachments as Word documeents?

In Windows Explorer, right-click on a *.doc file, select open with, choose program, and select Word as the program to always use.
