The BlackBerry Attachment Service enables BlackBerry wireless devices, BlackBerry Connect and BlackBerry Built-In enabled devices to open email attachments. The Attachment Service supports files created in Microsoft Word (.doc), Microsoft Excel (.xls), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt), Corel WordPerfect (.wpd), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), HTML (.html, .htm) and compressed archive files (.zip files), and ASCII (.txt) documents. With the release of BlackBerry Enterprise Server software version 4.0, the Attachment Service also supports images in .jpeg, .gif, .bmp, .png, and .tif file formats.
After a bit more reading it looks like to open attachments you may need to have a BES running the Attachment Service. BES Express can be downloaded free here: https://www.blackberry.com/express/
