Can't open ZIP Files that have forwarded by an IPhone

I have a number of IPhones recently purchased for the office. One problem we seem to be having is that when an email containing a ZIP is forwarded from an IPhone to somebody here in the office on their desktop PC they are cannot extract the files giving a message "NO FILES TO EXTRACT".

When I send that same email from that persons email account on their PC through outlook to another person in the Office the ZIP files open and extract files with no problems. We use XP PRO and Exchange 2003 in the office.

I have done some searching and I can't seem to find a reason for this. Any Ideas anybody?
