pdf attachment corrupted RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Reporting Services 2000 and I have a subscription set up to email out a one-page report as a .pdf attachment.  The recipients who are using Microsoft Outlook can open and view the .pdf file without a problem. 

     

    But recipients who are using Lotus Notes as their email program get the following error:

    Acrobat could not open <file name.pdf> because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).

     

    If I save the report to my workstation and email the same Lotus Notes recipients the file as a .pdf attachment (using my Outlook), they can open and view the attachment.  This leads me to believe that this is not an Acrobat problem, but a problem with the way Reporting Services sends the email.

     

    How can I send Reporting Services reports as .pdf attachments to Lotus Notes users without sending a corrupted attachment?

     

    Thanks for your help!
