Exchange is sending Office 2007 .docx files as .zip files, how can I fix this?

Hello,

I work in a school and we've converted most of our offices to Office 2007 now which uses the .docx file extension instead of .doc

I've had some people using Outlook Web Access that have gotten e-mails where the .docx extension has been renamed to .zip somehow.  All I do is rename the extension and it works fine, but was looking for a way to fix this.  Should I install Office 2007 on the exchange server?  Would this fix the file association problem?

Thanks!

Yeah I found an article that says you have to add the file types into IIS so Outlook Web Access will read them correctly.  Just trying to find a way to do this other than manually cause it looked like a lot of typing.

Here is a solution, just trying to find a download from Microsoft that will automatically do this...
