Word 2002 attachments won't open in Outlook 2002

My boss is using Office XP and cannot open Word attachments directly through Outlook 2002.  In order to open the Word attachment, I have to right click and save the file to My Documents and then open Word and open the file that way.  This only happens with Word attachments.  I can open PDF, Excel files directly through Outlook.  We are on a network and have SP1.  Our network administrator doesn't want to install SP2 yet.
