Hi Trent and welcome to Apple Discussions...
Check out the GoodReader app available at the iTunes store.
iPad supports the following formats:
.jpg, .tiff, .gif (images); .doc and .docx (Microsoft Word); .htm and .html (web pages); .key (Keynote); .numbers (Numbers); .pages (Pages); .pdf (Preview and Adobe Acrobat); .ppt and .pptx (Microsoft PowerPoint); .txt (text); .rtf (rich text format); .vcf (contact information); .xls and .xlsx (Microsoft Excel)
GoodReader for iPad received good reviews from MacWorld.
This simply does not work. I cannot forward any attachment that is copy/pasted, nor even forward a full email with images in it. I am currently in Greece without a computer and I am completely screwed by arbitrary allow/disallow of the iPad operating system (and so far, of my iPhone 4 as well).
Someone at apple please explain why mail is so completely useless as a true fully functional mail client???????
I cannot do business on the road in a foreign country, or even 10 miles from my home, with my iPad if I'm not able to communicate with all normal attachments, and I mean jpeg, tiff, PDF just to talk about a few generic types.....I'm not even trying windows only, which should go as well for windows users.
If you have the iWork apps or Quickoffice or documentstogo, then they send through the native email client using access APIs the developers encoded after being provided from Apple. GoodReader also does the same... I use Pages and Numbers all the time and email files as .numbers, .xls, and PDF from within Numbers, and as .pages, .doc, and PDF from within Pages. Those apps showcase how Apple intended the iPad to work. Give them a try and they might work for you... As for photos, go to the photos app, and tap the little box with the arrow coming out of it, and select up to 5 photos to email within the native app...
