Hello David,

Is the issue is with the Desktop Acrobat Email option or in your Mobile Device Adobe Reader?

Hi David,

Apologies for late response!

Actually we are not able to reproduce the issue at our end with similar setup.

Could you please try the following to nail down the problem:

-Try to attach any other file say a word file and see if it gets attached

     To do this: Open a word file and Goto "File>>Share>>Send Document"

         

-If you have Outlook installed on your Mac then make it default email reader and try your workflow with any PDF

     To do this follow the steps: i). Open Mail ii) Goto "Mail>>Preferences" iii). Set "Default email reader" to 'Microsoft Outlook'

         

-Please also repair Adobe Acrobat and then try.

Kindly share the results.

Regards,

Arvind

OK tried this and got this result

Had no problem sending from Word all fine

Reset to make outlook my default email and got the same message and it failed from Adobe

Someone suggested I should delete my adobe "plist" files in your library preferences folder

I have no idea how to do this and the impact it would have?

none of these solutions work. I have a MAC and the operating system is 10.13.3 High Sierra

i have Acrobat DC Pro 2018.011.20038 and Outlook For Mac Version 16.11.

Acrobat will also not attach a file using Mail for mac either. Word will attach a file to either email programs. I just get a bouncing Acrobat Icon at the bottom and an error message

I have updated Both Outlook and Acrobat DC Pro to the latest updates. This is very frustrating.

I have same problem.  I'm using Mac with Mail as my email program  on Mojave 10.14.1 and latest Acrobat Reader DC.  Attempt on Reader to Share File by my Mac Mail results in Reader saying  "error occurred while trying to create your mail document".  The problem began after I mistakenly clicked "no" to Reader's request to access my Mail program.  How can I reverse this to get Reader to attach pdf's to my Mail?

Solved for those at least using Mohave.  If you have in fact selected "no" from a dialog box allowing Acrobat to access mac mail, read this solution: An error occurred while trying to create a mail document | macOS Mojave 10.14

After making the changes, close both mail and Acrobat.
