Opening PDF Email Attachments

Message 1 of 2

My PDF email attachments open in Microsoft Word and can't be read. How can I open PDF attachments in Adobe without first having to do a 'Save As'? I have Adobe on my laptop.

The problem is a file association. 

 

If you are using Verizon's webmail then you need to fix the file association in your web browser.

 

If you are using an email client (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.) you need to fix the file association in your computer (varies as to how based on OS and client).
