Can't open pdf file.

By matyas.meszaros ·
Hello!
Received in the mail files from scanned documents. But they are all without a file extension. Of course not open. I opened these files using Total Commander, and there at the beginning of such inscriptions:

Please open the attached document. It was scanned and sent to you using =
a Xerox WorkCentre.
Number of Images: 48
Attachment File Type: PDF
Device Name: WorkCentre 7232
Device Location: Spassky 10, 3rd floor, backoffice
From the line "filename="img-209213043-0002.pdf"" I realized that it was a PDF. That is scanned by the scanner, and through it sent in the mail. But add the extension .pdf and open it in Adobe reader DC and get the error " There was an error opening this document. The file is damaged and could not be repaired (e.g., sent by e-mail as an attachment and not correctly decoded)".

What is this file? how to open it? Google has not the answer. Google doesn't give the answer.

First thing...

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to Can't open pdf file.

why are you trying to open a 2 year old email??? Also, you really should not post the complete message headers as they contain email addresses, but irregardless...
you DO NOT have a PDF file yet...what you have is an email with an attached PDF file. Open the email message in your email program, scan the attachment and save if it is clean. It would be wise to scan the PDF for malware BEFORE attempting to open it in your PDF reader (Adobe Acrobat, Foxit, etc.) Once you've made sure the file is not a carrier for malware, then save it to your computer and open with PDF reader.

By what exactly do you open the file? including the version... It actually file of the letter... keep it as .EML and import to an e-mail client.

Perhaps in this letter only one part of the file? Ask to send the scan through the usual post program. And let the sender will be convinced that the file opens. And if the file is necessary urgently then you will be able to restore it and to open via PDF Repair Kit. how to repair broken pdf files you can find on the site.
