Due to firewall issues at work, I often email myself files, then forward them to others using my phone. Having recently upgraded from iPhone 3G to 4, now when I forward an email with attachments, the attachments get zapped to 0B and effectively do not forward.
I seriously hope I'm missing something because if this doesn't work I'm gonna be pi$$ed!
I've only tried forwarding .doc and .zip files so far.
After much frustration about excel files not opening and repeatedly not getting answers from apple, I think I might have found another way. It seems that the new apple OS does not support older versions of excel. By saving the excel file in question (Save As) to "Microsoft Excel 2007 Workbook" the Workbook opens just fine as an E-mail attachment. If you have macro's you can save as "Microsoft Excel 2007 Workbook (Macro Enabled)" and it works also.
The Workbook in question as far as I was concerned was created in Microsoft Excel 2003.
Hope this helps
Apple needs to get on the ball. This was almost a dealbreaker with me.
Android is looking better and better every day.
