    Ok, I just resolved the viewing attachment issue, under account settings I unchecked the box for "Use secure connection (ssl) now I can view all attachments just fine.

    I hope this works for the rest of you.

    Glad it worked for you too, the yahoo mail should be easy? I have several other e-mail accounts setup on mine.. not yahoo, but many of my own domains.

    Unfortunately for me our corporate exchange server requires the SSL connection in order to allow connectivity... big security risk if everything is shipped around unencrypted. Tried but couldn't open connection to the server without SSL.

    If you have nothing to hide then it's not an issue... imo I could care less if someone is sniffing my e-mails... good for them lol I know this is not an answer for you, but often times people are too paranoid.

    verizom has escalated prob to level 3

    They say its a national problem. I'm on business plan. They claim fix will be posted. Mine still not working. Even emails forwarded from droid come as attachments. So can't open those either.

    It Works

    I left "Use Secure Connection (SSL)" checked and then unchecked "Accept all SSL certificates" and now attachments open up fine. Hope this helps.

    Fix Works-uncheck Accept All SSL certs, but still cant open .eml, .htm, and .wmv

    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.

    Email must be right for business

    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.
