I have tried to send an adobe acrobat formatted file (pdf) by using my email program (windows mail) and the error message I get is "adobe is unable to connect to your email program".  How might I correct this problem.  The files are on my hard drive in pdf format and I am using adobe reader version 9.  Thanks in advance for your help.

1.      Open Default Programs by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Default Programs.
2.      Click Set your default programs.
3.      Under Programs, click the email program you'd like to use, and then click Set this program as default.
4.      Click OK.

Just thought I'd put in my two cents..... The following procedure fixed this issue for me:

This applies to Internet Explorer 7 and above..

Open Internet Explorer. Go to Tools --> Internet Options --> Security. For zones Internet, Local Intranet, and Trusted Sites UNTICK "Enable Protected Mode"

Now try the "Attach to email..." link in Adobe Reader.
