Hi  Mario:

Since I am using Evolution for my email. When I click on a file that has
a pdf the only options I'm given when I click on the drop down arrow is
save as or open in document viewer. I need a way to change document
viewer from showing up in the drop down box and instead show acroreader.
Is there a way possible? Thank you.
