I'm not sure if this helps, Andy, but some of my users get corrupt pdfs
through certian mail clients.
Typically the "free" web based ones (hotmail, yahoo, epix.net etc).  Even
though these same pdfs are ok for others who
are copied on the same email using "regular" (pop3) email.  The only thing I
can prove is that these people should
break down and spend the money ;)
