    Files on BB & eMail attachments

    Advertisement



    Noobie question. I want to be able to save files and also save eMail attachments to my BB for later use. (1) How can I save them (2) How can I later view them. It seems unreliable to use eMail message saving as sometimes you can't get the message back. Also this is not a good file management system. Can someone enlighten me please. Thanks.

    Thanks for the fast reply. Let's say a spreadsheet, a Word doc and a pdf file for example

    And let's say I want to refer to them on my BB and also to sometimes forward them as an attachment to an email from my BB

    Well the only thing that I can figure out to be able to read this type of file is to email it to your bb email address or whatever address that your account forwards to your bb. Then when you get the email open it and open the attachment and you will be able to view your file. I tried loading it through DM but couldn't figure it out. I'll try to figure out a different way to do this if you want and then I'll get back to you.

    Hope this helps,

    Re: Files on BB & eMail attachments

    Thanks again. I am an ex Palm user and saving docs to the unit rather than as an attachment is my mindset. I would really like to be able to do it on my BB but there doesn't seem to be an obvious way you can manage the attachments and save them away and use them later. Anyone else made the Palm to BB switch and worked out a way? Thanks again COJO

    Thanks so much, this is EXACTLY what I need. It gives me what I needed from the Documents to Go application on my Palm.

    My only question is that in the manual it says it is free then goes on about registration and purchase. Can you or anyone shed some light on what is and what is not free?

    Thanks again

    Ok folks dont know if I am posting in correct area; but how do I save email attachment to the Mem card? I was send an email with attachment I was able to view, I can save it but not to the Mem card to the bb mem...is there a way to save to the mem card or do I need a 3rd party app in order to do this?? Thanks

    what I do with files is connect to my laptop, then I just drag and drop the files into the memory card. There I can later compose email and add that file as an attachment to send. I have tried it with .jpg and .mp3 so it may work for .xls or .doc give it a try.

    Today I received an excel .xls file on my BB as an attachment but there is no save option for it.
