    is the attachment on your computer? sometimes when you click on the attachment fist and say send, it will automatically bring up your email. Freddie

    Hi Rob,
    Thank you for your response. I have an iPad 2. I am using the latest iOS version 6.0.1. The attachment was just a small three page
    black and white PDF.
    Until later.....Bob

    Now that's interesting...was the PDF a photo of the pages or an actual PDF file? I have never forwarded a PDF file but I have copied them into the email itself to send on to another recipient....does that make any sense?

    I am sure that someone else here with a greater amount of grey matter will jump in with lots of good advice, meantime I am going to send myself an email, try and attach a PDF file to it and forward to myself to see what happens. Watch this space.

    Okay, I used GoodReader to send a PDF file in an email, which I received correctly, I then forwarded to myself and hit include attachment which again came through correctly. So.... If you sent the attachment as an actual PDF file....all I can suggest now is a reset/reboot. Hold the power/sleep button and the home button down at the same time and continue holding until the Apple logo appears. Let go and your iPad should restart although it may take longer than usual. See if that solves your problem. Sorry if you knew how and already did the above.

    Long press on the image until the save image dialog appears. Touch that and the image will be in your camera roll.
