Does your mhn.defaults contain this line?

  mhshow-suffix-application/pdf: .pdf

(The send(1) man page talks about all that.)

The mhn.defaults that comes with nmh 1.5 does, so it should
work out of the box (and it does for me) unless you override

The "mhn.defaults" filename is hard-coded, so the only way
to override it entirely would be to put one in your
Mail directory.
