When I send attachemnts in my email as Word documents, immediately the Word documents start to convert to PDF's.  How do I stop this from happening.  I do not want every word attachement to convert.  Is there a way stop the conversions or at least have Adobe to ask me for permission to convert the word documents first?

I think that depends on what preferences you've set in your email client to handle this type of attachments, and at the operating system level, you may need to re-verify if Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is   the desired default program to open and view PDFs.

This doesn't happen using Outlook on Windows.

 

Are you using the Acrobat ribbon in Word to send the email? It's job is to convert the Word file to PDF.
