  1. Anyone seen this before? Outlook 2003, part of Office 2003 Pro install on Windows XP, when opening a Word .doc attachment Word opens up and flashes the document then closes the document. If Word is already open, then the document opens fine. Here are the steps a little more clear.

    Email comes in with Word .doc attached.
    Double click on attachment to open in word.
    click open
    word opens up, the document opens and then closes, word stays open.

    Does this happen with any .doc that you're mailed or is it just one specifically?
