You still need to tell me how you encode your mime file.  I am starting to 
suspect that must be the culprit.  Unless as Jay pointed out, you simply have 
a screwed up pdf reader on your client.

Have you tried to open up the converted pdf with a linux based tool like 
ImageMagick's display?

Also, please tell me what is in your FaxDispatch file.  If all you have is 
that the file should be pdf and sent to someone, then I hope you have 
metamail installed.  if you do not, then without doing more, you won't be 
able to properly mime-encode the pdf file when sending it.

You need to use metamail (my first resort) or I guess if you cannot, uuencode 
or something similar.  Look at the howto and it tells you exactly how to set 
this up.
