Default file associations and RTF (rich text format)

I use pop3 email accounts for work.
I receive daily emails with .rtf (rich text format) file attachments.

When I open the emails, the attachments are listed.

I touch to open and QuickOffice loads to open them.


According to the QuickOffice website, QuickOffice does not support rtf files.. and it certainly does error on them. Why does QuickOffice open at all? I do not need any of its functions except the one it doesn’t have.


I have installed at present, this list of file managers.

Android’s default file manager

OI File Manager

Astro file manager

Cool reader


All of these applications support rtf files.

How do I set the file association for rtf files to an application which supports them?


Thanks for reading.
