Solved

OWA 2003 will not allow me to open pdf files unless I save them to disk first. How can I get them to open by simply double clicking the file?

Logon to your exchnage server and open regedit
browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeWEB\OWA\
open knowncontenttypes go to the end of the string and add:
 ,application/pdf

exit regedit and see if that has fixed he prob - you might need to reboot the server.
