Auto preview of attachments in 2010

We have just had Outlook 2010 installed but all other office apps are office 2003.

When opening up an email with an attachment it say there isn't a previewer installed for it.

Is there one available or are we required to have the whole 2010 office suite installed?

I would think it would need to be a supported attachment type. Outlook would need a supported viewer. 2003 may not work with the attacment preview

I checked and the viewer is already enabled, I think it may be due to us using Office 2003 applications and only 2010 version of outlook

It does seem 2003 apps are not supported with the 2010 previewer
