To open/read .pdf files....a user must have a program installed that performs that function.

You might try the one at http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/re...terstitial.html (the free reader). Download and install it as a program and you will then have a program that allows opening/reading any .pdf file.

If you receive a file for which Windows has no known program installed for opening...it will tell you so and give you options.

I'm guessing at what you want to do here.
Are you wanting to have your email messages downloaded to your computer, so you don't have to log in on the internet to read them?
If this is the case, is the mail your isp mail or something like hotmail, yahoo, gmail, etc?

In order to have messages downloaded to your hard drive, you'll need to set up an email client, such as Outlook Express, Outlook, Windows Mail, Thunderbird, etc.
An email client can be configured to work with your ISP mail.

As for .pdf files, you'll need to get a program which will open them.
Adobe can be used, it can be downloaded from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

If you mean something else when you say WANT MY MAILS TO BE READ BY THE COMPUTER please let us know.

I get a feeling that sobti raj is trying to ask for a text-to-speech reader so he/she can make his/her computer read out emails and pdf files.

In that case, a very nice FREEware is NaturalReader : http://www.naturalreaders.com/free_version.htm. It supports emails, pdf, word, text etc. Best thing is that its freeware :thumbsup:

You can also google for "Microsoft TTS" or "Text-to-speech" for finding software that can read out files.
