email adobe pdf document stored in OLE Object table

I have several imported pdf documents stored in a OLE Object column.  I woul like to email them via outlook when a user clicks on a command button on a form.  I have the email code, except for how to attach the OLE Object.  I tried to write the file to a temp.pdf file, but when I receive the email the pdf is unreadable.  is there a memory stream or other object that can be used to attach to an email msg and be filled with the ole object column?

This is one of the reasons why most people do not store this type of data in OLE fields.
The other resaon is that it bloats the database.
