The only idea I can suggest here is to generate a zip
file with a PDF inside it - Python can do this easily.  

I've been emailing MIME attachments with PDFs from Outlook
for years and never heard of a problem.  If people can
prove certain mail transfer packages corrupt PDFs, it
would be good to know that...
