Thanks to Zauberfisch i managed to disable uploadify:

Then I went into the normal SS Files & Images
And was able to upload a .doc!

I could link the file to my page by choosing (in uploadify on my extended page) -> 'existing file tab' - selected the doc.
Continue/Save button.

..And then the template showed the doc, with the correct name & path.
Which doesn't happen when i upload it through uploadify.

Please help me uncle cheese :D

'Download', // class name of the DataObject
'File', // name of the file relation in the DataObject
          'Title' => 'Title',
          'Comment' => 'Comment',

         $this->Title = $this->File()->Name;

      if(!$this->Comment) {
         $this->Comment = "None";

Hi borriej,

Try to edit file /sapphire/email/mime.types.

Search for msword and add new office extensions.
by ex change line:

application/msword            doc dot
application/msword            doc dot docx dotx
