    Sending PDFs

    Recently I have had problems sending PDF files via Yahoo mail and gmail - basically I see a "paperclip" for the email in my inbox, but once I open the email itself, there is no attachment visible at the bottom of the email. Does anyone know if we are not able to send/receive PDFs from these mail providers anymore??

    Also any recommendations for free Word-to-PDF converters?

    Thanks.

    Same here jaetee....I use CutePDF. Doesn't have that sponsor message in it.

    www.cutepdf.com , you have to install it with a postscript converter and it just shows up as an extra printer on your PC.

    Max, are the resultant pdfs identical in layout to the original documents and did you compare cutepdf with pdf995?

    Db- Didn't compare it to pdf995, but I noticed no visible differences in the layout compared to the originals.

    Works on all types Word, Excel, Powerpoint,etc... even believe it or not Ms-Paint!
