    problem opening attachments
    When I try to open a mail attachment by clicking "quick look", the document displays jibberish. i.e. random words and characters. Any idea what that's about?

    No idea what it is about, more info needed - Leopard or Snow Leopard and what type of attachments - Mail, Entourage, Gmail or what. Info = Help, so paint a picture that is understandable.

    If it's the problem my fried had (I'd need a screenshot to see), then it's most likely a corrupt font.
    Please grab a screen shot of the problem, and Yes, let us know what version OS please.

    Flip for Mac will do the job nicely:-
