    PDF is not a valid format for any mail client. The message format can be
    Plain Text, HTML or Rich Text. Either convert the PDF to a HTML document or
    copy/paste the text or image out of the PDF into the message.

  4. That would be a feature of your PDF software - look on its File, Save as
    menu.

    It was given to me as an adobe acrobat 8 file. I do not have the software it
    was created in; just the final version.

    Unless you have an application that can edit the PDF file (and there are
    several free ones available on the Internet), there's no way to do what you
    seek.
