Thanks - I'll try that.

Yes I have mailcap - and I assume Gnus is using it to open the MIME
attachment with the pdf file in it. I don't have anything in ~/.mailcap
- only /etc/mailcap on my Debian system. It just doesn't seem to
associate filename.pdf with the viewer for some reason. I'm probably
missing something simple in the mailcap setup.
