    If you are on Windows phone 8.1, just download "files" from windows store and you are able to do that. ;)

    You need to use an app. The best one for use with WP is the MS one - PDF Reader | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    You can do one of several things.

    You can upload the PDF to Onedrive and share it from there.

    You can upload the PDF to Onedrive, save it to your phone from Onedrive and then share directly from Office hub via email.

    Thanks. I do not want to share. I need to send as an attachment to an email.

    Download this app - Files | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United Kingdom)

    When you download something from IE it goes into the Downloads folder which you'll find when using that app.

    Long press on the file. Tap Share. Tap the email account you want to send with.

    When you 'share' something it's not what you think. You're sending the file to that person, or 'sharing' it with them.

    Hope that helps.

    You can ignore my previous post. I didn't realise the Files app had this ability.

    Thanks this ^ app works. I have had it (and Files&Folders Pro) installed for a while, along with the Adobe Reader app, but didn't realize that when browsing to a website with a PDF, clicking the link of the PDF brings up a dialog box asking to download or open the file... like this:

    I believe that in the past I have always hit open, which brings you to the Adobe Reader app to view the file. From here the only way to share the file is through an Acrobat.com account, which basically lets you share a link. For me this is totally useless.

    You are right - hitting download will save the file that can then be accessed through the Files app and added to a new email.

    One huge problem remains however, that is you can not use the Files app to attach the PDF document to an existing email that you want to forward or reply to. Only pictures can be attached.

    This is handled much better in iOS.
