    Make sure there is at least one application installed that helps to open pdf files default. You can go for quickoffice (.apk file) for the same.

    Are they downloading with a different file extension or just opening as a web page? If he checks his download folder what is the extension shown. There are a few free PDF viewer apps out there.

    We already have adobe acrobat and other pdf viewers available but we don't get the choice to use them as when you click on the attachment they automatically downloaded in html and a webpage error message saying this file type is mot supported shows up. I have tried going into internet settings and resetting defaults but it still downloads in html.

    Where are the attachments coming from? If it's an e-mail account, who Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo or another provider? It may be an email setting you need to change.

    When you open mail with attachment, before download, tap on preview and ensure the preview shows built-in pdf apps/ whatever pdf file opener applications are there. It also might be the attachment is too large or corrupt. You can also modify email settings to automatically download attachments  on your tab.
