Enable document attachment in emails
Enable document attachment in emails, since its painful not to be able to answer a coworker and quickly attach a word document.
Lumia 1020 a top of the line phone with Windows 8, not even close to the basic android phone. The email client is awful. Can't attach documents, can't open TXT attachments, can't select multiple messages (except one-by-one), not intuitive. This is not a phone for business users who want to communicate with clients. I have had to go back to my Android Samsung Galaxy S3 for work. If MS wants market share, then it needs to address business customers. I do not care about smooth interfaces with FB and Twitter (never use them). I care about being able to conduct business and that I can not do.
Yes, really disappointing this lack. Please enable all file type download and all file type upload, AT LEAST FOR EMAIL.
Let users browse upper levels of phone file system and choose their files. We need it to not change phone.
So ... two years and counting for a really basic feature. Xmas is comming up and the Nexus 5 is looking like a nice deal.
It is the basic things to attach a file which is not available in Lumia
....realy frustraing phone...
LOL, I just received an email stating that the "We need Microsoft to listen to our ideas and DO something requests" has been "completed"
This suggestion is the perfect example for why it certainly has NOT been completed: It has been here for over two years, now, and it's one of the major complaints I hear from others and experience all too often. I can't believe this "feature" has not been implemented - it is so basic! And still, not even a little reaction from MS? Seriously?
Even on my old Nokia E52 I could do this task! I thought by stepping up to a keyboard less smart phone with Windows Phone 8 as OS would be a real step up. But I remain only with big disappointments.
This is jst so ridiculous. I just discovered that I can't attach multiple documents in an email through the mail app. I think I'll shopping for another fone. This is basic functionality that is required of a smartphone. Sending links for AutoCAD drawings to clients through SkyDrive is just plain dumb.
Unbelievable! This is one of the most basic requirements of a Smartphone, and I have just discovered I can only attach PICTURES to my emails! I am not 13 years old FFS!!!!

Don't know why these guys are chargning these much of money if they can't enable this basic and importand feature.It was my mistake that I haven't asked to anybody regarding this while i am purchasing.Even old java phones has this facility .
This issue was posted in 2011 and 2 yrs counting its still an issue??? Attaching docs,PDF etc to an already existing email is such a basic requirement that you assume a phone has. Very very disappointing Microsoft..

i need to attach file any formats
most important ones:
and it is good if i can attach files from any cloud i have
yes! is incredible...i discover right now i can not attach a video file to my mail.......LOL. microsoft.....you have the best programmer stafs and this is the result!? really?!
Without capacity of attaching files to an email, Windows Phone constrain their clients. The promise of purchasing a smartphone is betrayed by this major limitation.
Are Microsoft developers listening ot the critical feature miss. Without being able to attach office documents. WIthout this this the PHONE IS NOT AT ALL A SMARTPHONE

People primary use emails for sending documents and PDF's.You Microsoft guys giving us option of attaching images only.This is unacceptable. This is a major problem in windows phone 8.
And still in GDR3 they ***** it up... you can now attach Office files... but only from the Office hub just like you could only attach from Skydrive previously. What a moronic fail at implementing this... Why are we, after THREE years, still unable to reply to an email and add an Office or PDF attachment? It makes no sense at all.

Yea, to me, this is not a missing feature, it's flat out broken. I'm a big WP8 fan, but when I see something like this, I can only wonder, "What were they thinking?"
Not just missing a multi-document attach, but when replying to an email after editing a document that was sent to me, I need to compose an entire new email to attach my edited document. This confuses the other recipients and reflects poorly.
After typing my email response and hitting "Attach", it's astounding to find I can only send a picture to my colleagues. I mean, I know "social" has apparently been the next greatest thing since sliced bread, but some of us need to get work done.
Lets get this in the next update!
Yes to attaching documents, including MULTIPLE documents to an email. Documents are all office products, PDF, etc
