And that's not a very informative e-mail. ;-)

You did not tell us
1. the way you got the file, e.g.:
 a) ftp (ascii/binary mode)
 b) "click" in a www browser
2. the version of your acrobat reader
3. your OS.

For me it works clicking in Netscape 4.76 (WinNT4.0) on the filename at
After that Acrobat Reader 4.05 opens the file correctly.

So there is no trick, I think.
