Word Document Attachment shows as garbled symbols, letters and numbers.

When I attach a word document to an email, I open it before sending it on to see what the receipent will be getting when they open it.  Two documents that I tested this way opens showing as garbled symbols, letters and numbers.  As a regular document, it opens just fine, in the normal way.
