    PDF files
    I have an attachment to an email that I am trying to open. It is a requested form from my tax account that is an organizer for 2012 taxes (not rushing into this, haha). The file is winmail.dat. They also sent a safe download for Adobe PDF reader if I need it. Can anyone tell me if I need the Adobe download since there isn't one in my Applications folder. And how do I open the file? I tried clicking it and got a window that sure didn't look like what I thought I was getting.
    Thanks for any help!

    Ask them to resend it, with rich text turned off. Here is a link from Apple to explain why: Mac OS X Mail: What is a winmail.dat attachment?

    Once you have the pdf file, Preview will open it for you. From there you can print it, fill it in, then scan it and email back.

    Thanks! I will do that tomorrow. Do I not need Adobe? I'm not sure what Preview is.

    Hi,

    Just open your applications folder that is in the dock and you will see Preview, it is pre loaded
