Currently Being ModeratedFeb 15, 2009 8:06 PM (in response to JohnFreitag)In general, Mail will display a PDF as a preview if it is one page, or as an icon if it is more than one page. This has absolutely no effect on how the attachment is sent, or on how it is displayed in the recipient's email program. The attachment is not really "opened" in the sense that it would be if you double-clicked on the icon in the Finder. It is simply displayed as a preview. It acts like a giant icon. If you want to see a normal icon, Control-Click/Right-Click on the preview and select "View as Icon". Again, this has no effect on what the recipient sees. That is under the control of his software, and there is nothing you can do about it.
