Enable document attachment in emails, since its painful not to be able to answer a coworker and quickly attach a word document.

        Such a huge disapointment - I was not able to reply to the email from the app and to attach the document that I had on onedrive and on the phone as well. And they find it strange that thay have 3 % share in the mobile market. lf they dont add this option asap I will dump the windows phone forever - unbelieveble flaw....

        C'mon guys. Just read the news. Windows 10 already brings it... They won't add it to Windows Phone 8.1 because in October (or after) all phones will start to update to Windows 10.

        Please enable the feature to add docs other than photos. We should be able to attach .pdf, .docx, .xlsx (all files) etc . files as this is a basic feature which is needed while we are replying to any of the emails that we get. Other than this drawback Windows phone is very good

        Running Windows 10 on my PC, Surface Tablet and Nokia 930. What MS are looking to do it write one application... lets say MAIL.. and it will run pretty much exactly the same on any device subject to hardware limitations such as screen, memory etc,

        My 930 has the MAIL app which is pretty much the same as the MAIL app on my pc / tablet and enable you to attach ANY / MULTIPLE files.... as you would expect.

        Windows 10 Mobile is still in Alpha stage so its very buggy / laggy and not for daily use. But, its a great glimpse to see what we should be getting later this year.

        Sadly, with nearly 700 comments and 13,608 votes on this site alone MS haven't even commented to say why its not available (OK, for a moment lets assume there is a real technical reason) which is ****.

        The development of WP8 / WP8.1 is dead now... no matter how much you want and need this its not going to happen. #fact

        @Jason Gilbert: can you please be more specific. What file types are you able to attach to an email reply? Are you able to attach word/pdf/xls to a new email compose, or are you able to reply to emails with these attachments ?
        If anyone has updated to windows 10, then please reply.

        Overall email app need to be improved. Inability to attach files only being one of the shortfalls. Note when selecting a file and share it appears to be working yet the email will be send without attachment.
        Sorry to compare but hope email app will improve to a level of android google mail in respect to UI appearance and functionality soon.

        It's very basic feature MUST be implemented in the next release. I love my Lumia, except for this one problem. I have to go to my iPad to attach a file from OneDrive or Dropbox? Really?

      • Raphael SantisRaphael Santis commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I was very happy with my Lumia phone until today when I realised that I cannot attach files other than photos to outlook mail for forwarded messages. This is the most basic feature for any email application which is missing in the phones. Microsoft needs to seriously look into this if they intend attracting more people to their phones.

        i am not able to attach any document or file type other than images when replying to any email. When i try to directly share a document or file using share option it always opens in a new mail instead of attachment in a reply, This is a serious limitations for professionals who rely on Smartphone users for work

        Ridiculous that this sold as a feature. You sould be able to attatch and download ANY file you want.
