I experienced this very problem about 3 days ago.
The reason: My view in the word attachment somehow had got changed to print 
view. I checked normal view, went back to the doc and it was still messed up--a 
line from page 3 then the first line in the doc then a couple lines from page 
2---well, you get the idea.
How did I solve the problem?
Went back into the doc, again checked normal view which again had become 
unchecked and this time did a control s and this time my views setting held and 
I have been able to read this word doc just fine since and any attached word 
documents as well.

Yes, of course.  Then what does the message, however it's formatted or not 
formatted, have to do with the attachment, or with how or whether the 
attachment can be opened or saved?

?  The attachment isn't the message, and it isn't *within" the messsage.  . 
I really don't understand what's being described here.  Sorry.  Why don't I 
just stop asking about it and give up, okay, since if you're in touch with 
Freedom Scientific, obviously someone understands what is happening and what 
you're describing, and it'll be worked out.  Thanks for trying to clarify 
this for me, and good luck with this problem.

The message body is what is in rich text format.
