    Default PDF App (Outlook 2003 SP1)

    How do I tell Outlook that I'd like it to open pdf attachments using Adobe Reader 7 instead of using Adobe Acrobat Pro 7?
    Thank you.

    You'll have to set Adobe Reader as default app for opening pdf files in Windows Explorer, in the File Types tab of Tools | Folder Options...

    Thanks, Hans. I'd set it to Reader in the past, and even recently had documents open using Reader. But without my having intended so, somehow the setting in Windows Explorer had gotten reset to Acrobat Pro. I'm perplexed how that could have happened, but I appreciate your reminding me to check there. Having fixed that setting it now works as expected.
