Hi all

I want to forward an email from my Ipad to some colleagues.
But I need to add a new attachment file to that forwarded email.
Note that the original email has no attached file already.
How can i do this ?

Thanks in advance.

Ipad, Other OS

    The iPad is set up so that any attachments must original in the files that work with them. For instance, images can be emailed from Photos and word docs can be sent from Pages. The workaround is to copy the content of the email you want to forward, generate the email from say Pages and then paste the content. You will still have to re-address the message.

    one other option I noticed last night for attaching a photo. I was replying to someone last night and wanted to attach a modified screenshot I had taken. The screenshot was modified in Photogene (cropped and bubble text added) and saved in the iPhoto library on the iPad. I couldn't figure out how to attach so just tapped the image to select it, copied it, and pasted it in the email...and was added as an attachment.

    I'm sure others have posted about this but I don't remember having seen it. This will really make my life easier since I tend to send a number of modified screenshots a week to folks or post to a blog.
