PDF Preview Handler

I got sent an email today with a PDF attached to it.

Since i’m using Outlook 2007 i did what i normally do and click on the message to preview it. Then i forget i never got around to installing a PDF preview handler so open it up in Acrobat

But today something was different. When i clicked on the message there was a “preview file” button. I clicked it and lo and behold PDF preview in the email! I tried it using Explorer and it works as well

I did a bit of digging and it turns out the Acrobat 8.1 update included a PDF handler

I’m suprised i hadn’t spotted it sooner but there you go!
