Download a file manager like ES File Explorer. Any PDFs I've ever downloaded get saved on the SD card. Which email app are you using? There may be a setting to choose where downloaded files get saved in the email app.

There shouldn't be any need to download a different file manager, well not for this purpose anyway. If you open the my files app then sdcard/Download they should be there. Don't go for the downloads folder though that will probably be empty

There should be an app preinstalled called Downloads. Open that and click the "Other Downloads" tab and you should see them.

Oh yeah, I never took different browser variations into account. That's why downloads has always been empty for me as I never use the stock browser. I'll be in some variation of download/s
