Re: KMail and Outlook?

Hi Franz

You might want to take a look at the mswordview package.  The 
mswordview program will convert an MSWord document to an HTML page. 
Another package (that I use) is catdoc.  Catdoc includes a program 
called wordview that displays MSWord files sans formatting.  Catdoc 
can also handle some Excell file types.

Catdoc will (optionally) install itself as a MIME.type to allow mail 
programs such as mutt to view MSWord documents.  I don't know about 
KMail but suspect that it handles the mime system too.
