OE6 does not open MANY attachments.  It uses the associated program to open the attachment.  For example, if you don't have PowerPoint installed and try to open a PPT attachment it will tell you there is no association and you need to select which program to open it with.  Is this what is happening?  If not, we will need a better explanation than you have given above.
