I have Acrobat Reader 9 installed and it works fine.  Whenever I click on a pdf attachment to open it in Outlook 2003, Outlook alerts me that "Acrobat Reader is required to view this file. Do you want to install Acrobat Reader now."  If I click "OK" it tries to install Acrobat Read 5.0.   Is the a problem with where Acrobat "plugs-in" to Outlook?

have a look at the plugins in internet explorer and see if the adobe reader one is listed?

I presume outlook is running in HTML message formats?

I just fixed it. The solution was to change the "Opens with" property within Windows Explorer
