How do I attach a photo to an email without using "gallery-share". It does not provide me with an option to send from my other email accounts. Thanks in advance for any advise.

i guess if you know the name of the pic you could use a file manager, such as astro. I never tried it but why would you not want to use gallery share?

I have Astro and know of no way to use it to attach a photo to email, using "share" is a fast way to do it but only with the two accounts. I am still trying to find a way to use share with any email account I have. However I think it can't be done.

I can share via gallery or a file manager, choose gmail, then pick which mail account to send from. Does the other email app not allow choosing an account?

Just checked, and I can attach pics or files within a new email from both gmail app and regular email.

On that compose screen, I see a From field, where I can click on it and chose which gmail account to send it from. You have more than one gmail account setup on the phone? If not you won't see that option.

I would think the regular email app would have the same option if more than one account is setup in it.
