I left "Use Secure Connection (SSL)" checked and then unchecked "Accept all SSL certificates" and now attachments open up fine. Hope this helps.
The fix worked. thanks. I notice that the device is still unable to open .eml, .htm, and .wmv attachments. It also only gives you the option to save an attachment if its a picture/image file. You only get "Open" option on other attchments. A lot of forwarded emails from mobil phones and web mail come as .eml attachments. This is a real problem that it cant open these.
Unchecking "Accept All SSL" worked for me too - thanks. I can't remove the SSL, but my hosted exchange provider actually told me to use the "accept all" because it would have less problems. Perhaps my calendar will actually push now too.
This thread seems to be all business people - am I the only one GREATLY disappointed in Motorola and Google for some of the shortcomings? Sure they might get it fixed, but these are MAJOR issues and even once those are done, this leaves me wanting for a lot of options (filing emails in folders, signature, delete off handheld only, save permanently on handheld, etc.)
And I consider not having tasks and notes and especially ones that will also sync with Exchange to be absolutely ridiculous.
I am afraid for Droid - even if they get it right, it might scare enough power users off before they get it right.
I agree. I may regret my decision to go with Droid. but the Android platform opens alot of doors for improving. I bet we will see a tasks and Notes app soon that will sync.
I bet we will also see some different email APPS. now that the phone supports exchange push, anyone could write APP to "handle" the content.
I really need ability to edit an email I forward, to remove text, long headers, etc... and to prevent it from going to the recipient as an attachment. right now the only choice is forward the whole thing as an attachment, or delete the "Quoted Text".
I wish they would have let me be a betatester.
I had this same problem. This is what I did to solve it.
Go to Settings,
Accounts & Sync,
Scroll down to Manage Accounts,
Click on the appropriate exchange account,
Scroll down to Incoming Settings,
Uncheck Accept all SSL certificates.
I then paid for and downloaded Documents To Go. I can open jpegs, xls, doc, etc. Fast and easy.
The only files I'm still having trouble with are TIF files. If anyone has the solution to it, I'd appreciate it.
Seems that if you use self-signed or wildcard certificates unchecking accept all SSL certificates will cause you to stop receiving mail at all.
So, wildcard certs need to be supported
Self-signed certs need to be able to be installed
Attachments need to be made to work when the Accept All SSL Certs option is selected.
My Exchange server utilizes a wildcard cert for the entire domain (*.<domain>.com) works fine on the iPhone and with Windows Mobile unfortunately not with the Droid.
Have you tried going into the Accounts Settings and turning off"Accept all SSL Certificates"? It worked for me. Press and hold the Account you created. Select Account Settings. Scroll down to Incoming Settings. Take off the check mark on Accept All SSL Certificates. Hope this helps. BTW: that little problem also causes battery life issues. Good luck!
DROID : download attachments from their exchange account?
Go to the settings for your account. Then choose Incoming settings. Uncheck the box labeled "Accept all SSL Certificates" All attachments that you have a viewer installed will now open
