This can be fixed rather easily.
You'll need to change the permissions of the file. Just locate your file in your computer, right-click it and select Get Info. If the file is an attachment, you can save it to your computer by pressing the Save button on the upper-right corner of your email. Once in the Get Info window, click on the lock in the lower-right corner and enter your password if it isn't unlocked. Then, under the Sharing & Permissions section, change the permissions. The easiest way to access your file would be to allow everyone to Read & Write your file.
I hope I helped you,

This I have done, but to no avail. The main file (PDF) links to an index also a PDF then to the library of files (PDFs). I have changed permissions to all the files and to the folders, but I still get the message that Preview does not have permission to open the files. Yet, Adobe Reader opens them all without a problem.

OK, that is weird. I agree. I'm sorry but I can't help you further. My apologies.

Thanks for a royal try. I have this problem with my MBP and iMac.

I guess new operating system = new problems

Any fix for this - I have the exact same problem - I believe it is related to Preview being Sandboxed.
