Notepad will only display plain text. If it is displaying any thing other than plain text then the file you are trying to load is something other than plain text.

Go to a command prompt and navigate to the folder containing the file you are trying to read.

Enter Type filname.txt

If you still get gibberish then it is not a plain text file

Contact whoever sent you the Email and find out what format they sent the file in.

Lets isolate the problem. I use this, instead of Notepad. You can double click on links ( live links / hyperlinks ) as well, to open web pages.

EditPad Lite
