    Often I receive emails with pdf attachments that I'd like to read while on the go. Droid says "no viewer available". I've tried just about every app in the market that claims to read pdf files but I'm not sure if these are supposed to read attachments since none of them make any difference, I still get the same error message.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Odd then, nope I haven't been able to open a single pdf file sent as an email attachment. I haven't tried any Office files but will do so. Still, even if that works it won't solve my problem. Thanks.

    The other email app for my standard pop3 account. And now I'm using K-9 Mail for it too, can't get a pdf to open in either one.

    That's a possibility. At least I can return it if it doesn't work. It might not if there's some sort of file association problem on my Droid for some reason. If there's a native app, and I've tried other pdf apps, and none of them are working...

    Have you tried Beamreader? That's what I use.

    When I get email with attached files (doc, pdf, whatever) I cannot open them even with the paid version of Docs to go. If I forward that same email to another account on my Droid, I can open them with no problem. With the forwarded emails, I get the "PDF to Go or Quickoffice" window and can choose either. With the original email, I get "fetching" and nothing else.

    I tried beamrider with no luck. And allikanbe, thanks for the tip. Sounds like we both have some sort of bug, but I wonder why it's working well for other folks then. Like if we installed some other app that's causing a conflict. You shouldn't have to jump through hoops like that. I'll try the same thing to see if it works. Thanks.

    You have to clear the defaults and the choice will come back up. I still cant open certain pdfs..this is ridiculous.

    I can open PDFs on my POP mail and my Gmail account, no problems. My gripe is, I can't save the darn things to my SD card :(
