Outlook attachments have gone missing - replaced with originalmail.eml files

In the past day my Word document attachments have been replaced with "originalmail.eml" files of the same size, but which do not open.

Help!

I'm using Outlook 2002

My problem is that Word .doc files are being received as "originalmail.eml" attachments which are the same size but carry no information. It's definitely on my end, and I haven't changed any Outlook settings, and I have run "detect and repair" with no change.
