I am curious how do you save attachments for the IPAD?

    You cannot unless they are photo's which can be added to the camera roll. The iPad is not like the iPod which can store files, but is like the iPhone in that it cannot.

    I have been able to save jpg files direct to my photo group by simply hitting the arrow in the toolbar of the email browser window. As for XLS, DOC, an PPT files I purchased the ipad PAGES, KEYNOTES and NUMBERS it is simple to save them in those groups once I open them up with one of the above applications.

    Hope this helps.

    Well when in doubt read the manual and that is what I did and hear is the answer - Thank you all for the replies and responses-----cdm

    View PDFs and other attachments within Mail. Save attached photos and graphics to your Photo Library. iPad works with MobileMe, Microsoft Exchange, and many of the most popular email services—including Yahoo! Mail, Google email, and AOL—as well as most industry-standard POP3 and IMAP email services.

    For PDF files open them in the email and then at the top right corner you will see "Open in iBooks" (or close to that). When you select that not only will the document open in iBooks it will also store the doc in the PDF section of iBooks for later. Same is true for Keynote, Pages, and Numbers (or PowerPoint, Word, and Excel which are converted when opened) if you have the iPad versions of Keynote, Pages and Numbers.

    There is an even better way. If you have the dropbox or CloudOn App (both free for Ipad) you can always touch for two seconds the attachement in the email (PDF, Office doc) and select "Open In", you can then open in either of these Apps and save them to the Cloud. I use dropbox and it created a default folder called uploads where all my documents from email are saved...very neat.


    Hope this helps!
