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

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
