    What's the file extension of the e-mail attachments?

    For example:

    .doc

    .jpg

    .txt

    .zip

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    What's the source of the e-mail attachments?

    If they're from unknown or unsolicited sources, do NOT attempt to open them.

    You should be able to select Notepad or Wordpad to open and view documents in .txt format.
