Anything other than text that you paste into an email in Mail.app is 
converted to an attachment. Depending on the reader (the application, 
not the person) on the other end, you either get a bunch of attachments 
(but the text is OK, the order might be tricky), the exact same mail 
(probably uses Mail.app as well), or just the text up to the first 
pdf-paste, and the rest of the text and pdf-s as attachments. If you 
put an attachment (any attachment) into an email, make sure it is at 
the end - not all readers (the application, not the person) are smart 
enough to figure out what to do with it, causing trouble to the reader 
(the person, not the application).
