Probably because you aren't considering all the implementation details.
E.g. here is a scenario which would explain your symptom:
1. You are using a POP3 account.
2. The E-mail does not have a PDF file but an Office .DAT file
encoded as a TNEF attachment.
FYI OE can't open such an attachment (doesn't even see it as an
attachment in HTML mode), so I suspect WLMail may do the same.
BTW what do you see if you set your Read option for
Read all messages in plain text ?
If you don't see an attachment that way, use Ctrl-F3
and browse the source to see if it contains a TNEF .DAT file
as I mentioned.
