I got your e-mail. Before I can figure it out I am going to need to know as much as possible about it. So, if you don't mind, tell me everything you know about it:
Where it came from, what its perpose is, ect., ect.

Alright, my guess is that each one of these digits represents a letter or word. I think word.

P.S. Currently, I can't get past page one.
It appears to be classic hexadecimal i.e. Base 16

You have the numbers 0 through 9 and the letters A through F

Thus any one digit can represent a value from 0 through 15

Since there are 26 letters in the alphabet this argues for interpreting each 2 digits as a value between 00 and 255 (00 => FF)

Now with this interpretation you have many more values than letters, numbers and special symbols, and a quick scan indicates that most of the values from 00 to FF are in fact used, so even if my interpretation is right, you still are a long way from figuring out the puzzle, since there aren't enough of the 26 combinations that would equate to letters.

PS, in typical nomenclature C1 = A, C2 = B, etc F1 = 1, F2 =2. etc On the otherhand, many of the values between 00 and FF don't relate to either a letter, special symbol or number.

Looks a lot like a hex dump of computer memory. Which is also typically addressed in "pages". If that's what this is, then forget trying to "break the code", there isn't one.
