cannot open adobe acrobat pdf file scanned to Outlook 2010

When I scan a document from our Xerox printer/scanner to my work e-mail account in Microsoft Outlook 2010, the pdf file will not open. The message reads, "Cannot create file: Scan 001.pdf. Right-click the folder you wante to create the file in, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder".   I have followed their instructions, but nothing seems to work.  What I then do, is forward my e-mail to my personal e-mail account at home, open up the pdf file attachment, then e-mail the file back to my work e-mail and then It will let me open up the pdf file.
