    When clicking the PDF Link in an email the link does not work in IE8.

    I had a similar issue with the edit submission link but this was fixed.

    Hi,

    Meaning, you cannot view it using your IE8 browser? Or, you can't download it in IE8? Did you see an error when trying to click the link? Please let us know!

    Thanks

    Thank you for the screenshot. Don't you have another browser, i.e chrome or firefox? If you have, I would advise to download the PDF file using any of these browsers while I continue to investigate such problem.

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    Whilst I personally have another browser I can use, as a company we currently support IE8 as the default browser on company computers. This will therefore mean that the majority of users will, when clicking the link, open the file via IE8

    I tried downloading the pdf link in email using IE8 and I was able to. I suggest that you reset your browser to default then try the link again. Please follow this guide on how to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737.
