[kdepim-users] attachments in KMail

I installed Open Office 3.1, which opens MS Word documents as expected.
However, I get the same problem with trying to open Word documents that are
*attached* to emails.
If I right-click on attachment.doc, and select "Open With...", Open Office
Write is listed under "Known Applications". However, if I select Open Office
Write it opens a *blank* page. This is the same behavior I get with KWord!
Am I missing something here?
Thanks & Best Regards,
New York City
