I have downloaded important information from a fellow Fool regarding his investment club's bylaws. How do I access this document on my computer through AOL?

It turns out that the fellow Fool, who is served by a full ISP, had sent Dodgeball, on AOL, an email message including two MS Word documents as attachments.
Guidelines for Sending Mail to AOL Users:

- do not send more than one attachment per email
- consider sending material as plain text rather than
as MS Word documents

Suggestions for AOL Users Who Receive a Message They
Have Difficulty Opening

- forward the message to a friend who uses a regular
ISP and see if they can open the attachments and
send the material back to you, one at a time
- open a "webmail" account, such as on, and
forward such troublesome messages from your AOL
mailbox to your Yahoo mailbox. Your web browser may
have better luck opening the attachments than your
email software will
The fellow Fool (message sender) was using Microsoft Outlook, and Dodgeball was using AOL 4.0.

"Where had you hoped to go last decade???"
