    Do you have an app that will read a pdf file, and are you on the Verizon network where you are?

    Hmm... I connected to the market just now with no problem. I don't have much experience with pdfs in emails, but I know I've opened a couple on my Droid.

    If you still have an email with a PDF that you KNOW worked, try that. You also might want to turn your phone off and then back on to see if that resets anything as far as connection.

    You should search the forum. I was just reading a thread on issues with pdfs in emails either today or yesterday, and there seemed to be a lot of good advice in there. Maybe even a problem solved!

    If you have Astro File Manager installed, go into the settings an enable "all downloads". This will allow your browser to download any file type.

    Or you can install "Download Crutch" from the market, which will enable all file types to be downloaded.
