It depends on the type of attachments. Which types of attachments do you need?

Several types such as Word, Excel, PDF attachments are viewable on the BlackBerry through BWC. More types of attachments will be available with the deployment of the 4.0 infrastructure (BlackberryOS 4.0 and BWC 4.0).

"work fine" is a relative term

You will get very basic ability to view those documents, in a vary basic format. If you want to manipulate the attachments, you may want to consider eOffice from Dynoplex. If you want to see the documents in a format closer to that originally intended, you might consider METAmessage from onsetinc.com.
