Sounds like the wrong program is set as default for pdf files. Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you have should be set as the default for pdf files. If you don't have a pdf reader then that is the problem.

I have Outlook 2003, so I can't help with Outlook 2010 configurations. But check all the options in Outlook for anything that possibly could be related.

Are you running Outlook 2010 in a compatibility mode, by chance?

This website tells you how to disable Compatibility Mode.

Tip 723: Don't use Compatibility Mode - Outlook Tips

To get to that, click the Start Button, select All Programs, scroll down to MS Office, Left click on it & you will see Outlook, Right click on that & select Properties, when that opens select the Compatibility tab & then follow the instructions shown in the website above.
