Problems opening Acrobat email attachment

When we receive an attachment on email which is a pdf file, Acrobat reader will not open it and says "file cannot be found". We can however right click and save the attachment to a folder and open it then. This has started occurring in the last six months.

What email program are you using? There are a few known issues related to PDF attachments in email for Acrobat/Reader X.
One involves attempting to print a PDF in Outlook 2003/2007 without opening the attachment and the other involves Lotus Notes. Here is a link to the known issues with further details:
