the stuff below looks like a raw pdf document. If you're seeing it in a browser
it probably means the server/application is not sending the right mime type or
your browser is misinterpreting it (ie hasn't got a plugin for pdf etc etc). I
would try and look at the pdf, but it has been totally corrupted by email and as
PDF is a binary format I won't be able to use it.
