I have, for a number of years in the past, used Adobe Acrobat XI Pro to consolidate multiple emails into one PDF file. Unfortunately I did not understand the impact the withdrawal of Flash Player last year would have and I can no longer open the individual emails within the PDF file - I only see the most recent email. I would really appreciate any advice on how I can resolve the problem and regain access.

You can still use portfolios if you upgrade Acrobat. XI was finished long before Flash Player went away.

You can't open Flash-based Portfolios in Acrobat XI any longer. You can open the files if you convert them from a Portfolio to a regular file, though.

This can be done using this (paid-for) tool I've developed, for example: https://www.try67.com/tool/convert-portfolio-pdf-to-normal-pdf

I think I also saw reports of it working if you attach the old Portfolio file to a new one, and then extract the pages from it, but I didn't test it myself.
