How do I change the version of Word that Mail.app uses to open Word documents?

I hate Word 2008 for the Mac (because it's slow and buggy and doesn't play nice with Expose). Currently, I have both Word 2004 and Word 2008 installed on my computer, and I'd like to keep both of them. However, I would like Word 2004 to be the default version of Word that (suitable) documents open with, both in the Finder and in Mail.app. I can change all in the Finder, but Mail still insists in opening attached files with Word 2008.
Can anyone give me instructions for making Mail.app use Word 2004 instead of Word 2008?
