How do I save email attachments as PDF documents. I had an adobe icon on
outlook 2003 and I could click on it when I had an attachment and save as
PDF, I since got upgraded to 2007 and it has now gone and want to know how to
get it back?

Then you had an add-on installed for Outlook 2003 to do the PDF
conversion, and now it isn't installed or isn't compatible with Outlook
2007.

Find a PDF Printer utility. Then open the attachment (or any doc) and
print to the PDF Printer. PDFCreator and BullZip's PDF printer drivers
work very well.

Install the compatible PDF writer software. Version 7 of Adobe isn't
compatible.

Printing to PDF is not the same. If you use the Abode button the attachments
are editable. You can also use it to make 'packages' of messages you need to
save.
That depends on what PDF viewer you use. Adobe's Reader doesn't let you
edit but PDF-Xchange's viewer does.

You mention "Adobe" which is a company name, not a product name. So
perhaps the OP has Adobe *Acrobat* installed but that was not specified
in the original question nor is that a typical scenario for the vast
majority of Outlook users. It wasn't like the OP provided a lot of
details or context, or even why he expected an Abobe button be present.

If the OP is using Adobe Acrobat (not mentioned in his post) then he
needs to upgrade to a version of it that is compatible with Outlook
2007. That means moving to version 8.1, or later, of Acrobat to include
a version of PDFmaker that is compatible with OL2007.

New Features:
- Microsoft Office 2007 support.
- PDFMaker Office 2007 PDF Creation.

Looks like the OP will have to spend more money to get an updated
version of Acrobat, or use free utilities that permit editing of PDF
files (after first using free PDF printers to create the PDF file).

Reader doesn't add an button on the toolbar, Acrobat does. (I know, I own a
copy. I have the button too.)
Kind of pricey at $90 (newegg quote) for an upgrade to Acrobat (Std
version) just to get an "Adobe" button in the toolbar when the Print
button (and PDF printers) are free.
