Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

May’be u have a firewall or DMZ configuration that is causing the problem. Guess ur iNotes access is in a DMZ or has a firewall in front. U may try sending a .jar file or even an .exe file and try opening via iNotes to find out for sure. If u are blocking PDF files, u’ll most likely be blocking EXE files.
Also u check the below:

    This issue has been resolved. It was a hotfix that was applied to the affected servers. We had HF263 and applying HF281 resolved it.
