    Problem With Attachments In E-mail

    Advertisement



    I have recieved a few e-mails with attachments (most likely, just pictures) from my family and I use to be able to click on the attachment and it would give the option of which attatchment to open. Well recently I have noticed when i click on the attatchment word, "open attachment" is no where to be found in the menu I dont understand where it could have gone??? If any one has any ideas, please share them with me!! OOH yeah I remember on version of the desktop manager, I use to have, actually had a long list of applications in the application loader. I seen attachment service is that list. But the version of DM I have now only shows the third party applications and themes Does that have something to do with this?

    DM doesn't matter when trying to open an attatchment- has nothing to do with desktop manager, nor should it have anything to do with the OS....

    When that happens, I have noticed it's it a format that the bb doesn't support, orits an attatchment that was forwarded many times so it simply isn't there anymore.

    well i was asking what version of DM because he should have the attachment service installed on the device to view attachment of the supported type. so i want to know the DM version and OS version he is running

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the reason for only seeing third party apps is that the OS isn't installed on your comp. Once you have put the OS on you will be able to reinstall the attachment service.

    DM-4.2.2.14 OS-4.2.2.181(platform 2.5.0.35) I dont even know what that OS is all about. Do I need an upgrade? ItsNowOrNever- I checked my reguler e-mail on the computer, and the attatchments are just pictures. But I do know that BB is picky about file formates.

    when you download a new OS on your computer, just run the .exe and it will automatically install the files to your comp. its as easy as pie, BlueBERRY pie

    Ok. When I get to the PC I will try it. I downloaded DM version 3. That's the newest, but is it the vest choice. Also, now I have "1 missed call" always showing but I have no missed calls, any ideas?

    connect to DM and click on backup/restore then go to advanced.

    on device databases clear the call logs. it will clear out that icon. if you use your call logs then do a backup and after you clear them you can restore them.

    Switch the picture format (what are they anyway? If it's BMP, it wont show) and email it to yourself and see what happens.

    If you can see and open other attachments, then you have that application.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?
