    I agree. I wish a developer would tackle this issue. I can't believe more people don't complain about this issue. It happens on all emails for me. No pictures .

    I've got my gmail account setup to retrieve my AOL mail, and my dad sent me a picture on the AOL account. I downloaded it to my droid with no problem.

    Do you know what file type the pictures you're having trouble with, or is it really ALL of them?

    I'm not having this issue, but am willing to work with you guys to try to troubleshoot and/or recreate the issue on my phone to try to find a better way to deal with this...

    If you haven't already looked into, I've seen MANY good things about the e-mail app in the market called k9 if nothing else.

    Give me more details and I'll do my best here!

    [I don't regularly talk to anyone with an iPhone, and it's only 6am here, so I won't be asking anyone to e-mail me anything...]

    Does the iPhone still not support picture messaging/mms? I know a friend of my had the first generation and he had to go online to see any picture sent to him. That's really the only reason I can think that iPhone users would be sending you and e-mail with a picture...

    I have the same issue as the OP. I really can't believe that you cannot download attachments through the gmail app. I hate having to go online and retrieve them through the browser.

    Get on this Google!

    Have you tried K9 yet? I haven't tried it but many people feel the stock mail app is insufficient. Try K9 as suggested above. And please read the entire thread. Blaming Google may not be the issue.

    The GMail app is perfectly fine. It's the EMail app that most don't like, for various reasons.

    What i'm referring to is a problem generated by the GMail app Google created. There is no reason they should have limited the GMAIL app to only download a handful of file types.

    A work-around is going to the gmail website and downloading the attachment off there; meaning it's still possible, but they make you work for it. *dumb*

    ***Also, the thread isn't that long. i don't appreciate your snarky comments. No wonder you have so many posts. thanks for bloating up the thread. YOU read the entire thread, it's about the GMAIL app, and not the EMail app, therefore K9 is not relevant.

    Sorry to rant but sometimes i can't hold back any longer. Also, it's snowing like crazy here and i'm worried about getting home.***

    As noted on a number of other threads, Documents2Go enables the download of both Microsoft and Adobe documents via the gmail application. In addition, it allows Microsoft documents to be edited. (And yes, you have to pay for it. Usually about $10.)
