You could uninstall Adobe and re-install
Does it make a difference if you click the e-mail button in Adobe, or click insert, insert file in Outlook

"Outlook generates and attaches a winmail.dat file at the end of each message that only Outlook can use. It's put at the end of the message so that on the receiving side Outlook can display the message correctly. This file is typically very small, and may or may not include the original attachment. However, Outlook is the only email program that can use this information. Therefore, recipients using email clients other than Outlook might receive the winmail.dat file instead of the original message.
To help prevent email recipients from receiving winmail.dat files the formatting needs to be changed to Plain Text. Below are various ways you can change the formatting on the emails you send, including formatting for individual emails, specific contacts, and for all the email you send.
Changing the formatting for all email sent
This will change the email format for every email you send. First, select Tools->Options from the Outlook menu bar, then select the "Mail Format" tab in the dialog window. In the first drop-down list, under the "Message Format" heading, select Plain Text, and click the "OK" button.
Now, every email you send will be sent in Plain Text.
Changing the format for specific Contacts in Outlook 2003
This will change the email only for specific Contacts. Open Address Book by selecting Tools->Address Book and select the desired recipient's entry in your address book. Double-click on the recipient's email address--another dialog box will appear. Select Plain Text on the Internet Format drop down box and click the "OK" button.
Now, every email you send to this Contact will be sent in Plain Text. "

If you right click one of the PDF's you saved, then send to, send to compressed zip folder, can you attach and send that?

If your mail account is web based, can you log in and send anything from there?

Same suggestion Keith gave. Possibly you have a security setting in an app that will not allow zip/pdf files to be sent? I really didn't understand why you couldn't even send it in plain text form. Could the file size be too large? Usually this isn't much of a problem nowadays, but can happen. Certain email option settings on both ends can create problems too. Have you tried another email client?
2. Email the PDF document for review.
Open the PDF document in Acrobat 7.0 Standard or Professional, and choose File > Send For Review > Send By Email For Review. Enter your email address, if prompted, and click OK. Then, enter the reviewers’ email addresses in the wizard. You can modify the subject and message, if appropriate, and then click Send Invitation. You may need to switch to your email application to finish sending the message. Reviewers can use Acrobat or Adobe Reader 7.0 to open the attached file and add comments, and then click Send Comments to return their comments to you.
