Saving email attachments in os2.1

It seems that saving email attachments such as pdf's is slightly different in 0s2.1....I now have to touch and hold a downloaded attachment for a second or so, then the save/open option appears.  In, previous versions, you just had to tap the attachment to save and open.  Now if you tap a pdf attachment, it immediately opens as a temporary file in adobe reader. 


Probably a better way now, but frustrating to have to learn it without any guideline.


Also, downloading attachments seems flakey....sometimes the spinning circle sits for many minutes before the download starts.


I am continuing to find the whole native email experience to be less than desireable.


The email duplication thread describes a number of user experiences from before and after the upgrade.  The good news is that the duplication has been solved, but the red x and difficulty to reliably send emails continues.
