Can you load the file with PowerPoint? When I try to load the file with
Powerpoint I get a message that Powerpoint is not able to load the file.

The first attachment is from Google IMAP and the second from Google webmail. 
The first fails with error message on PowerPoint 2003 but freezes

I suppose Google IMAP eats attachments, but a corrupt document should not be a
DoS attack.  :) should be more like PowerPoint with regards to
giving a sensible error dialog and aborting import.

In my mind an enhancement.
- a broken file should not freeze the office while loading.
