Reading PDFs on the command line (with misc/lesspipe)

Since I use mutt to read emails on my server, I would like to
read PDFs on the command line. How can I do that?
I installed misc/lesspipe and -- as far as I can judge --
configured it properly.
$ echo $LESSOPEN
However, if I run
$ less some.pdf
I still get an unreadable output of fancy symbols.
Has anybody got lesspipe running properly? Or are there even
better approaches for reading PDF on the command line?
