The problem document referred to in my earlier email can be found here:
Like LibreOffice, Google Docs also cannot view it, though a link is provided to the original file, at the end of the line starting:
    "You can also try to download the original document by clicking"
(Here's a tinyurl to the doc too: ; it's called Test+Export+to+Word.doc btw.)

Many thanks,

I am trying out Atlassian Confluence, which allows the pages it manages to be exported in Word format (.doc). If I load such a file in Word, it works, but LibreOffice will instead first provide a "ASCII Filter Options" popup, and then opens the document as if it were a raw ASCII text file. Here is the start of the file (the entire file is attached):

The contents start as:

Message-ID: <>
Subject: Exported From Confluence
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/related;


It reminds me of an email. Does anyone know whatkind of file this is? Can it be opened as a Word doc. in LibreOffice?
