Corrupt pdf files, any advice.

I'm now not so sure, as I have just discovered that the original PDF file I
was testing with this displayed fine in Acrobat, but was declared corrupt
by Sophos.

I'm on the lookout for the qf+df files of a message including a PDF file
that Sophos is happy with, or a PDF file that Outlook XP will encode as
quoted-printable (I can only get Outlook to use Base64, which of course
works fine).

So still haven't resolved this, sorry.
