Fix apparently-corrupted PDF attachments in Mail
Authored by: Anonymous on Nov 10, '08 03:23:51PM

It might be worth trying to send the message to a Gmail, or other free online account -- and then send it back again. It sounds like you actually have a corrupt message, rather than a corrupted mailbox.

In my experience, Apple Mail doesn't make good sense of some weirdly formatted messages. For an obvious example of this mishandling, send a message alternately between Apple Mail and Hotmail and look at how the multi-level quoting breaks -- all because Mail expects greater-than followed by space, and Hotmail simply prepends a greater-than sign.

I'd be willing to bet it's something similar to this.
