Are you getting any error message?
This could be a number of things,it could be that it was sent in binary format rather than MIME or perhaps Windows itself doesn't recognise the file attachment.Try saving it to your hard disk and opening it from there.

If you have a look in outlook express/tools/options/security and see if "do not allow attachmentsto be saved or opened" is ticked.
