When clicking the mail icon in a PDF and selecting Outlook to attach the document, Outlook opens but Adobe is appending the folllowing to the body of the email:

Please find the PDF attached.

I have searched settings and the registry and can't figure out to disable that. And it is only happening on one computer. Others with the same version aren't doing it.

Yes, Adobe added this "feature" in one of the latest updates, and it can't be disabled or changed.

The only way around it is to create the email and attach the file to it manually, or to use a script, like this free tool I've developed that will generate a blank email with just the current file attached to it:

What's odd is that other installs of the exact same version and build are not doing it.
