The attachments are stripped by the email system so you will need to post the file somewhere and post the link. Also, advise us your OS.

Occasionally docx files will not open properly. This caused by MS using an implementation that is close but completely compliant to ODF standards. I have personally seen occasional problems with msox formats with a good LO install.

You have three options:
1 Use a zip utility to get the actual xml file to open. docx and ODF files are actually archives and both can be "opened" using a zip utility. You may need to change the extension to *.zip. 2 Try LO 3.5.0, normally handling of docx files improves with later releases.
3 Open the file with MSO and save to ODF.
