last time i had that trouble with pdf it was a network problem with a
nic adapter on windows, try test with another imap client from another
computer on another network i.e some imap webmail client on the server
for verify
also check all relevant antivir solutions and/or proxies that may involved

hint, we dont allow *.doc directly as attach etc for security, such
stuff must
compressed , easy rule with postfix body check

Best Regards
