    I described the process in Your Last Post about the PDF Viewer App.



    Are you sure the file is a PDF? You should see the file type as the last three letters of the attachment. Options for attachments within the E-mail include Download and Preview. Is this true for you?



    Preview does not always work. In that instance I Download, and when it is done it asks with which program I would like to view the attachment. For PDF use ThinkFree Office, for JPG use Gallery, for MP4 use YouTube or Browser.



    If this is not the case, please describe your process and I will try to help.

    Are you using Gmail or another e-mail app? I tested opening a PDF from Gmail and using the Yahoo mail app and both worked successfully. I haven't tried the default mail app that came with the phone because I don't have an account linked to it. Maybe someone else can test that.



    Also, have you tried opening the PDF on a computer? Maybe the file is corrupt...not sure.

    Not sure I can help on that since I don't use the default e-mail app. Can you open PDFs outside the e-mail app? Try navigating to this link and see.

    I just emailed myself a pdf and was able to open it it in the default email app without any issues. I was able to use both Think Free and Adobe to open it.

    It should just have an open button in the email. You touch the open buttona and if you have more than one app that opens the type of file, it will ask you which app you want to use.
