    I'm using the stock program, and I received an email with pictures. Everytime I try to forward it, the pistures/attachments don't go? I'm unable to save the pictures too. I can't press on the photo and save it like I can with Handcent? Can someone tell me what to do?

    I am having trouble with the email as well. Cannot save attatched pictures, and embedded pictures just show place holders. Does yours show pictures in the body?

    You can not forward or save files and attachments in the email client mode. You could use the wen which takes much longer . The service is incapable of acting like most smart phones. Lots fo features but a bummer for business accounts.

    I did some more research, seems this is a bug, it used to work for people in Android 1.5, so hopefully a fix is comming.

    Odd though it will show pictures in an HTML advertisement like a Tigerdirect.com e-mail.

    The best advice is simply to abandon the stock "email" app on the Droid. You can use the "gmail" app (if you forward your email to your google gmail account), purchase an email client such as Touchdown (if working with Outlook and/or Exchange is important to you) or download the free K-9 email client.

    I use both gmail and K-9. Each has benefits.

    If you're upgraded to the latest OS, you can DEF use yahoo email on your Droid, whether the paid version or the freebie email. I'm not sure how to do it, but if you go to the Verizon store and talk to someone knowledgeable (stressing the fact that the upgraded OS allows it now), they'll be able to set it up for you, as they did me, just a couple of days ago.

    This is what almost everyone who uses Yahoo has used to set it up with 2.1:

    Yahoo Email Set UP 2.1
    The interesting thing is that if you just supply your ID and password the following settings are used with 2.1:

    Incoming
    IMAP server: android.imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 993
    Security type: SSL

    Outgoing
    SMTP server: android.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 465
    Security type: SSL
    Require sign-in

    Hope that helps!

    Does this work even if you have the 2.1 through the hacks on this site?

    client email attachment forwarding

    Set up the Yahoo email client with the new settings for 2.1 and it still will not save or forward email attachments.

    It seems you have 2 troubles, one is with the smtp server and the other with saving attachements. Let's look at the second first, I am using Gmail and have no trouble saving attachments however it does take a bit of work. First I open the e-mail and preview the attachment, you will usually be asked what program you wish to use to view it. I use Word to Go, when it is open, open the menu and select File, then flick up to Save or Save As. Once saved you can create a new e-mail and attach the file. A bit of a work around but then again it isn't a workstation or laptop. As far as the SMTP, are you having trouble retrieving or sending e-mail from your third party SP? Verizon closed down their SMTP Relay Server last August leaving a lot of us in the dark. I did find AuthSMTP, who act as the relay server and all is gold in the Land of Oz once more. To change the incoming and outgoing server options, just open e-mail and hold your finger on the account you wish to change, go to incoming or outgoing server settings and have fun. Good Luck

    Not speaking of web based mail servers. The client server on the Droid.
