Opening of .TXT files in Playbook

Hi,  I am using Plabook  2CD3 in bridge with my Handset 8900.

 

In the incoming mails, I get some mails from our business Email server with reports attached in form of  .TXT files.

I am not able to open these mails as playbook  says they are " Unsupported Attahments".

 

I am able to open them in handset 8900 but objectve of seeing them in " Playbook" is to have better redability and view.

Can someone help me on this ?

Couldn't find anything interesting. Could you point to what we should look at?

Ah, Found a solution, if you can access the email on the web (e.g yahoo, gmail) , download the txt file but change the extension to .doc, and it will open it.

I appreciate that. However thee attachment is not recognised by the device and hence it can't ba saved as well.

If you touch and hold the attachment you may (if lucky) get a Open or Save As option. Change the txt to doc and save that as suggested above. They will then show up in the filemanager documents. Try it.

If what Jarviser said doesn't work, try to download Firefox Mobile and that will let you save files to your SD card.

Re: Opening of .TXT files in Playbook

Hi, I tried doing that. Holding down only selects the " file name " which can be copied but doesn't  open it !
