Office 2003 basic.

Attachments open in "wordpad" instead of Word.

Mail setup: Use Microsoft Word 2003 to edit e-mail messages is checked.

This is a re-install. All settings are the same.

What kind of attachments are they?

If you go to Start | Default Programs | Associate a File Type... and check the file type of the attachments can you set them to open in Word?
