Strange problem. Usually attachments can be opened by clicking the
envelope-icon in the upper right corner of the message - or there is a
link in the end of the message (depends on the software you're using).
You are not required the get any new software to open them.
However, I suggest you try unsubscribing and then subscribing right back
to the list. This might fix the problem by itself. Problem might have
something to do with the digest-format.
