    i just came from a blackberry tour. With the tour if I was emailed a pdf file I was able to review it. I can do the same with droid with pdf viewer. The problem is how do I download it and save it to a file on my sd card, and then email later to a client when needed.

    It helps to include which email app you're using.

    K9 does this. Can't say specifically for PDFs, but I don't see why not. I transfer zips and txt files quite often to my SD card using K9.

    Edit, just search the market for K9. I haven't used the stock e-mail or gmail apps in a little while to remember if they did this or not.

    I was hoping to do it without changing my email client or app.

    With Astro, a free market app, you can just long press on the file you want and select Send. for an image I can send it to Picasa, gmail, messaging, facebook, etc. For a PDF my options are to send it to gmail or use bluetooth.

    with 2.1 if I got a pdf document and view it with quick office the file would then be saved to astro and I could email to to whoemever I wanted. Now with 2.2 when I view it with quik office it does not save the file to astro. Why? How do I accomplish this now?
