    Thanks for the quick reply wolwol. There is an Adobe reader on the CD that comes with the Treo. It worked fine on my Tungsten T3 but it does not seem to work on my Treo.
    I was able to open a bmp attachment so maybe it just doesn't do jpegs for some strange reason.

    A pdf will not work unless synced through your desktop.

    for jpg make sure you have a viwer IN RAM (not card) and that your mail program is set for that as your viewer. this works fine with snappermail and splashphoto.

    so far the best solution i know to read a pdf while out and about is to download it and email it either to

    pdf2txt@adobe.com for a return email in txt

    or

    pdf2html@adobe.com for a zip file with the html in it....

    for a large file this url will show it in your browser on the treo too

    the conversion with a PC doesn't work for me since when i want to view a pdf with my handheld i am not by a pc!

    The Treo cannot read PDF files natively. You can email yourself a PDF all day long, but unless you take it to your PC, load it using the PC app for Adobe Reader for Palm, and sync it, you wont be able to read it. You will notice that a file synced properly does not end in pdf., it actually ends in filename.pdf.pdb, which is a valid Palm file.

    You will also need a jpeg file viewer to view those. I think one came bundled with the upgraded version of DocsToGo...

    To reply about the .jpeg part of your question. I do not believe that XpressMail opens them. However VersaMail does.

    jpegwatch lite from Handwatch is a good free JPEG viewer, integrates nicely with Snappermail...
