        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 !!!!!

        What the bloody **** ... I bought Lumia 1020 out of craze and now I can't do my,daily task which is attaching a doc or a PDF with a quick reply????

        Why do I need to take the U turn to go the doc first and then share it to attach it to the email.... Very disappointed

        I am unable to download email attachments (e.g. pdf and docx) from Gmail server, especially when the message has several attachments (not downloading all of them). Starts downloading but nothing happens (file size < 1MB).

        Mail setup on the phone was done using "Google" email account settings.

        I am running Denim on Lumia 635.

        This is really a huge disappointment, not able to reply on the same mail. There is no use of window phone and I never suggest any body to buy window phone.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • SwapnilSwapnil commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

      • Marie-GraceMarie-Grace commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate
