Here is how I fixed mine. I opened the document, which it open in word. I saved the document as pdf format. I then opened the document from place I saved it. It opened as pdf, but with garabe. I then right click and properties tab. File associated with to open changed to pdf click apply. When I went back to my email message the file was in proper format. I then opened it. It was fine.

if you have windows 8 and are using the email tile with your email accounts sync to it. Try going to the desktop version and going to your email accounts website and trying it through there.

Even you have installed PDF reader, you may also cannot open the pdf files. That is possiblely your PDF reader is the older version, you need to download the lastest version of pdf reader

Hi i also had the same problem, I was trying to open a attached document from my hotmail account and it wouldn't open onto microsoft word. The file was saved as pdf. I spent ages but OMG one website that actually worked!!!! couldn't believe it, and theres no need to enter no registration details or any personal information! so that was brilliant! i got this website on my favourites now

this is the link.

All it needs is the document you want to open so browse for the file then it will ask what format you want to save it as, rich text format or DOCX then it ask for your email address and within a few minutes you will get a email from them with your file attached and your able to open it and read it in word!!!! honestly worked! really good website to keep for the future!
