I don't think that Evolution, the default mail client, can let you
preview PDFs, regardless of viewer.

As for you question about "it there a viewer", yes there are:
      * Evince, the default PDF viewer in Gnome, I don't think it can be
        used to view PDFs inline in email or browser
      * Adobe Reader can be installed from the Medibuntu repository [1].
        It can work as a plugin in Firefox (if you install the plugin
        part), but AFAICT not in Evolution
