I am not exactly clear what you are asking, but if you right-click a .doc attachment in an email and save it to your hard disk, you can then load and edit it in MS Word.

If that doesn't answer your question, perhaps you could explain a little more.

Sounds like you have MS Works.

You could try using OpenOffice - Free download here: OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite . If I remember correctly, I think it will open .doc documents.


Edit:
P.S. Not a good idea to post your email address publicly.

windows 7 comes with wordpad, which is a real basic word processor, but it works fine.

it might be all you need.

you'll find it in start menu >> accessories
