Default open html attachments

Please Login to Remove!

Hello
I just got my 8830 BB from Verizon today.
I recieve a lot of emails that have html attachments.
How can I open these and have them open in a app that supports html format.
Now when I try to open them I get the source code in a text editor.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Since I am new to the BB world I will go out on a limb here. It would seem you either need a viewer, I know there are doc viewers for .pdf, word, excel etc. As for html viewer I found BBSmart Email Viewer plugs into the BB native email app and lets your html email show up as it normally would. This may not be what you are looking for but I thought it would help. Check them out at BBSmart - Software for your BlackBerry

Default Attachments??

Its not the email itself that is the problem.
I need to be able to open a html file attachment.

BB doesn't support html documents. There are a couple of 3rd party email viewers that give some html content. Search for BBSmart and Empower. Nothing for documents, though.

JC is right and I don't mean to hijack, but I can't believe RIM has no immediate plans to improve on this major drawback. I know it would mean more memory drain (possibly even running out), but it sure would be nice for them to find a way to cache to a memory card. Even a Palm can do HTML email... geez.
