Sorry if this has been asked before, I believe it is probably a
common question however the state of mhonarc documentation and
archives might be achieving info overload to sort through.

Will mhonarc take an email containing for example a Word document
attachment and archive the email/attachment in such a way that when
the archive is browsed with a web browser, the email will present
an icon or other link that when clicked, will download the Word
document in a form that can then be opened by the Word application?

Some of the behavior you are asking for is dependent on the HTTP server
since it is the one that is responsible for sending the appropriate
MIME type to the client.

On the MHonArc side, MS Word data is saved with a .doc extension if the
proper content-type is specified in the message.  You can use the ICONS
resource along with the "useicon" option to the external filter (see
the MIMEFILTERS resource) to have an icon show with each attachment.
The mhonarc docs have an example ICONS resource that you can copy which
should work well with Apache HTTP servers.
