Notes on accessing pdf files in Outlook Express 6
Have you got AcroReader installed. If you have,  it will show up in the Programs section of the Start Menu.  There is also usually an icon on your desktop.  If AcroReader is not installed,  then click on the link below to download it directly to your computer.  Although version 5.1 is not the latest,  it installs and runs reasonably quickly.    
Download AcroReader v 5.1
If Outlook Express says "Outlook Express removed access to the following unsafe attachments in your mail:  file_name.pdf.",  then you should be able to gain access by altering an Outlook Express setting.
Start Outlook Express and then on the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Security tab and then untick the Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus check box under Virus Protection.

Please make sure you have an anti-virus program installed on your computer.

Very important - keep it up-to-date at all times.
