Outlook 2003 word attachments

By Lord Foul ·
We have just migrated to Office 2003. When i receive an email message with a Word attachment and double click to open the attachment, word opens it in reading view (yuk). How can i adjust it so that when i open a word attachment, it opens in Word 2003 without defaulting to reading view.

Try doing these settings in Word

Note When you open a Microsoft Word document that you have received as an e-mail attachment, Word automatically switches to reading layout view. If you don't want to use reading layout view for e-mail attachments, clear the Allow starting in Reading Layout check box on the General tab of the Options dialog box (Tools menu).
