    If you use Outlook Express 6.0 (which isn't as bloated as Outlook itself :8} ), then select Tools-Options.Click on the Security tab, and uncheck the option "Do not allow ... be a virus"

    Instead of disabling thatentire security option, it is better to just allow pdf files in outlook express (should apply to regular outlook too).In folder options go to the file types tab and find the file extentionyou want to enable, click advanced, and uncheck "Confirm open after download".
