How to avoid threat from Office docs in emails?

Today I read an article (on a uk service named The Register) about yet another zero-day exploit in Flash. Comments on the article pointed out that Office docs, received as email attachments, are a well known vector for invoking such security holes. The recommendation is that such docs. should be blocked at the firewall.

This is a problem for me: I support a lot of foreign University students, reviewing their dissertations and other documents, invariably sent to me via email or as chat service attachments. These students are obvious security risks - not so knowledgeable or careful about computer security. How do I continue to receive their documents in a form that does not put my computer systems at risk?
