Opening pdf attatchment files


Kirstie Monson

Hi there,

For some reason my Outlook Express (part of Windows XP)
will not recognise pdf attatchment files. (I have the
latest Acrobat installed). When I click on the
attatchment to open it, it is showing the pdf file in
grey, meaning I can't open it or even save it to file to
open in another program. All jpgs and other attachments I
receive have been fine.Also when the same file was sent
to me via my yahoo e mail address I was able to open it.

any tips? or things I can try?

Hi -

This is a group to support Outlook from the Office group of programs.
Outlook Express is a part of Internet Explorer and is a quite different
program, despite its similar name..

You will probably get a faster and more expert answer if you post this to an
Outlook Express news group.

Try posting in one of these newsgroups: for OE 5.x for OE 5.5x for OE 6.x
microsoft.public.internet.outlookexpress.mac for OE for Macintosh

If those groups aren't carried on the news server that's carrying this group
try using (MS's public news server that's the source
for all the microsoft.public newsgroups).

A good website for information on OE is:
