I read the article, but I am still trying to decifier why Adobe Reader is putting a .aspx extension on the file when you email within Adobe?
Am I explaining this correctly?
>Am I explaining this correctly?
You are. Are you opening the PDF in a browser? I think this was addressed in 8.1
Hope this helps clarify a little more.
I am in Adobe reader 7.0 and click on the Email link in there. A dialog box comes up stating:
How would you like to email this document:
Send a link(URL) to the PDF file on the Web?
Send a copy of the entire PDF file as an attachment?
"Send Link" "Send Copy" "Cancel" are the buttons that are available.
I click on Send Copy and Outlook 2007 opens up with the file attached as a .aspx.
Why doesn't it attach as a .pdf?

Bug, maybe. Are you using 7.0.9? If not, update. Or upgrade to 8.1.1
Interestingly I upgraded to v8.1.1 and now i get filename.aspx.pdf, still not sure why I am getting the .aspx file extension, but at least I can open them now.
Thanks for the help!

Yeah, it was fixed that way because Acrobat can't control how PDFs are being sent to it from a browser, so now it assumes that if an app is sending a pdf, it will add a pdf extension.
Curious that you said that you aren't attaching files from Reader in a browser context though.
Thanks for the information. As I had the similar problem and while upgrading to v8.1.1 it works.
ALSO, I need to update the subject in the mail while choosing option i.e. "Send a copy of the entire PDF file as an attachment"?
How I can add my own subject in the mail while attaching pdf file, currently it shows as "do" subject name?
Hi, I also have the same problem this time with Adobe Reader XI version. Does anybody have a solution or any workaround?
