    We just bought a new laptop and when I am in webmail the attachment is an MS word document attached does not open up msword to view the document, it thinks it an html document and just opens another window of IE and is all garbled.

    To open a WORD document, you need to have either Microsoft Word(which is part of the Microsoft Office suite ) or the free Microsoft Word Viewer 2003 installed.

    You can download the free viewer from here. Once it's installed, it'll automatically open any WORD document so you can view it and print it.
