It was supposed to be a pdf.  Does anyone know how I can troubleshoot this?  I would attach it but it is not in the list of acceptable attachments.  The user is running Outlook 2003 and our Exchange server is 2007 on a 2003 server.

Are you using Thunderbird to send the file?   There is an old bug related to this...  see here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=2024781

Otherwise, how is the file being sent?   Is it sent from another mail client or from an online web app ?

You should probably report the error to the owner of the app of file a bug report.     A simple google search shows quite a few bugs like this for home-grown web apps.

It might be a simple rename, you can try to download the file and rename to a .PDF just to solve the immediate issue.

I forgot to ask, is this your app? Or are you using a 3rd party website to send the attachment?

I am not sending, I am trying to receive the PDF from a web site.  I have called them to see if they are aware of the problem.  I also tried to rename it and I receive teh standard - Acrobat could not open because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged.  It does say perhaps it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded.

I resolved this by calling the vendor and asking them to email me the pdf directly rather than going through their web app.
