Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

You can do this.

1) Upload those files to Skydrive
2) Install Skydrive app.
3) Run Skydrive app, Holdtap onto the files you want, click on "Send a link"

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

All that sounds harder than a simple "attach" button like the rest of the world has

 

If its important stuff your sending then who wants to store it on a 3rd party skydrive? rather than just attach it and send it to just the person you want to have it.

 

Skydrive is for what i want to share/store not for business

Bit of a mix of queries here, but to most objects can be sent, eg Word doc, picture. Select the item then 'Share...' and you have an option to send via you're email.

... and for Trefola, it works fine for me.

 

I open the email and select the attachment, which seems to then download the item and allows it to be viewed

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

Microsoft has blindly followed iphone in giving access only to the picture folder from the "compose email" module. Windows 6.5 was so much better in terms of having the whole file system available to be used for various purpose.

 

It is extremely important to NOT depend on the third party applications to provide the emailing facility of a file. Acrobat Reader app does not provide 'send file as mail attachment' facility and so all Lumia users are stuck with hopelessness.

 

The native email application should allow browsing of files on the phone or on the skydrive to be attached on to the email.

 

Hope Microsoft and Nokia take this feedback positively and act on it.

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

Depending on third party apps to send attachments to emails is not consumer friendly thinking. We are used to attach files while composing emails.

So the email module should allow browsing of files and attach whichever files I need to attach.

We cant go against consumer behaviour and make new ones.

Hi VoodooKing,

How do you upload a PDF attachment that has come on email on the windowsphone? It gets saved somewhere and can be opened with the acrobat reader. And the reader does not have a facility to upload files anywhere, or to send mails.

thanks.

Once the pdf is on the phone it seems to be impossible to do anything with it. You can't upload it to Skydrive and you can't email it out. If it was downloaded from a site as opposed to being sent as a pdf document you can upload the link to the website to SkyDrive and access it there but this depends on a 3rd party then maintaining a live link so if you do that as back up you'd really have to access SkyDrive link on a pc or android and save the pdf to them.

You can also open the file..then just share via email. I admit that it is a ridiculous way to have to do it. You hit the attach button and it assumes you want to attach a photo.

This needs to get fixed.

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

Not sure what you mean. If there's a pdf attachment in an email you can open it and send it on by forwarding the email but I've not found anyway of attaching a pdf to a new email.

Any pdfs , whether downloaded from a website or from an email is only accesible from the adobe acrobat app. There's no option on Lumia 800 , to email a pdf out from the app.

Agreed Caitlin1759. Nokia Lumia 800 user here. It's TRUE you can forward an email with the pdf file (I mostly want to send pdf files), but then I can't delete the original forwarded email text. When needing to forward a pdf brochure to a customer, I can't have the body of emails between myself and another customer at the bottom.
How does Nokia and Windows expect to gain market share with business users??

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

That is another major failing. The pdf issue can be worked around on Win8 by uploading it to Skydrive (but not on win7) but emails can't be edited on either.

It's not just pdfs; there's plenty of occasions when it's necessary to edit an email before sending.

Hi there, just bought a nokia lumia 720, but am stuck with my pdf files. I cant send them via bluetooth, nor through email, i dont want to go into the problem of skydrive. The mobile looks beautiful, is very fast, the camera is awesome, but these problems just dont do it  justice. Nokia and Microsoft, please take these as serious issues.

Dear Counsellor,

so this really cant be done as we might expect with WP8? 

Crazy, but will it me changed in WP9?

i need to send multiple PDF's to certain customers as and when. simply attach; no SKYDRIVE or "share"

and thats not even bringing up the 80004005 POP3 issue....

Re: Mail sending and receiving with attachments pdf file and mp3 file on lumia

Since Microsoft wants their cellphones as business phones it is not understandable the picture limitation with attachments. Huge Companies decide against window phone cause of too many limitations. Is there any update which does fix that? I was hoping Amber but was disappointed so have not much expectations but hope with blue they fix that. Do they wanna fix this at all??
