I have one photo attachment that I downloaded that rests in my photo file, but I can't get it to downlaod anymore attachments from email. Any help or tricks I need to do to make this happen?

touch and hold the attachment til the message Open or SaveAs appears.  Do the latter.

Re: Downloading Attachments in Email

What kind of file extension are you trying to download, and what - specifically - is happening when you try to download attached files from your emails? Also - are you accessing email via the PlayBook mail app or something else?

 

I've never had any particular trouble downloading attachments, but I do know that if it's a file type that is not one of the standard types for the file manager, finding them isn't obvious. For example, if I download an epub file from an attachment, it doesn't show up in the file manager, but I can still navigate to it via my ebook app.
