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.
I am sure most of the posters here must know this... Just in case someone hasn't...
If you access the gmail website on IE on your phone, you do get the full gmail web experience INCLUDING attachments of ALL FILE TYPES.
So if you are on Windows phone and committed to gmail and need attachments, there IS this simple workaround, though not optimal as a dedicated app.
What ****** me off is, clearly since there is access to a File Picker dialog which lets you choose ANY file to attach , from either the phone memory or the SD card, I can't for the life of me figure out why they didn't just make a call to the File Picker dialog in the Outlook app instead of hardcoding only the images destination and image file types.
This is inexplicable.
I am VERY keen to know if this is simple stupidity or whether there is a valid programming reason for this.
Who sends only pics in email?? This feature is must-have!
Enable pdf in e mail also...
i can not compose and unable to send attachment and while trying to send attachment system become hang
I want to sell ,y window phone , I can not able to attach document while replying to a mail .

Unfortunately, this function will NEVER appear on Windows Phone 7 / 8.1 #FACT
Windows 10 Mobile is a month or two away and the Universal Outlook App has this function.
Sadly, MS have chosen not to even acknowledge this thread ... Very poor on MS!
Saying that, I am running Windows 10 Mobile & Outlook Mail and it works very well so far!
this function its so very very important for all
95% users are unable to download word & excel files in Nokia Lumia 530. That's why most of the people prefer android phone as compared window phone.

Unbelievable!!! Those kind of limitations lead me to get rid of my iPhone 4s, get and android Samsung Galaxy, then an LG and never get back to iPhone or Apple in general !!!
Is this really happening?!? Isn't Productivity one of major differentiator for Microsoft in a world of quality free software? How such a basic business productivity feature as file attachments didn't get prioritized!?!?! Truly in disappointment and disbelief!

Please add pdf files in The mail attachement. This should be already an issue solve. Why The user have to ask do something obvious?

Can it be possible add pds files in The mail as an atach? This os so obvious. Why os not available?
Alternatively, allow the full Outlook application (like Android and iPhone have) if it offers this feature.
This was very disappointing. Stupid engineering. Cant attach a office file while replying to email. Fix this asap.
How fools are the nokia lumia 800 designers, it does not supports docx , pdf to download as attatchments, I am the great ****** of rs 25000 for buying it, I suggest not to buy LUMIA windows phones in life.

We need a basic feature: Save an attachment to SD card so it can be shared in other apps. Please do that asap to allow phone usability while working with it

This is what happens when you hire yuppie software engineers right out of grad school and ask them to develop business solutions.
All they know is uploading photos to social media platforms.
You want a business solution - put somebody who understands business on the job.
This issue and the lack of response from MSFT is indicative of :
1. Complete breakdown of some of the most basic software design and development fundamentals.
2. Complete disconnect with reality.
3. Complete failure on part of quality control (if it exists at all)
4. Utter disregard for the customers who invest in your product.
Is there a way to inform Mr. Bill Gates that his product does not facilitate email attachments as universally required, in AD 2015 ?
It is incredible that at this point we can not attach a file to office mail response from Windows Phone 8.1 !!!!!
Can attach pictures but cannot attach any other files
