I have a .pdf in an email.  I need to convert that to a .doc.  without paying $$ to buy Adobe Acrobat, etc.
Remember it is an attachment in email

Now, if you're running Linux [free] you'd have Libre Office, or Open Office [both free] which will convert .pdf to .doc, .odt, and/or just about any other format you can think of for free, and if you're running Ubuntu or Mint you get Adobe Acrobat, don't know about other flavors, also for free.
