I'm new to this forum, so I hope I'm not posting a query that's taboo.
I'm a soon-to-be-graduate (graphic design) and have opportunities to apply with highly creative ad agencies. I want to use my resume.pdf in a creative way to provide these companies with my resume and info.
Is there a way to attach a blank pdf file to an email so it will actually be a link to my website (where my pdf resume is located) instead of causing Acrobat or Reader to open? When an email viewer clicks on the pdf icon/file-name to open it in Acrobat or Reader, they will actually be triggering their default browser to link to my website page (the page content "reacts" to this surprising action).
I don't know much about Acrobat (6.0.2 Professional) or anything about Mime, but would this be a Mime editing issue or a document properties issue? When I hold my cursor over a pdf file attached to an email I've received a small properties box pops up. One of the things it shows is "Mime-type:application/pdf."
Am I able to define what application opens the file; is there a way to define the application to be the viewer's default browser?
I hope I've clearly explained my intent and would really appreciate any input.
