Email Program / PDF Viewing problems
I have found that if I receive an email with PDF's attached, the iPad Email program on shows the first page of the PDF and the attachment is lost. The work-around is to receive the attached PDF to your email (hotmail, gmail) and then use the Web browser (Safari) to check your email. This works for the time being. Does anyone know when the email program in the iPad will be fixed?
PDF conversion and fowarding issue
Ok lets see if I can get more specific.
We have 2 new IPads and they both are doing the same thing, and I have narrowed it down a bit.
The issue comes in, when you recieve an email on the IPad that has a 1 page PDF file, the Ipad automatically converts that 1 page into an image for you, so you can see it easily. There is no problems there, that works great, the problem comes in when you need to foward that email, with PDF attachment to someone else. When the other person recieves the email, the PDF is not an attachment anymore, just a text refernce <job1234.pdf> thing, and a blank small white picture box with red X in it. No PDF file, no attachment, nothing... Something was lost in the conversion and the sending the email back out.
More into it, it only does this with 1 page PDFs, if the PDF is 2 or more pages long, the IPad does not auto convert it, and it is just a attachment link you have to click on, which makes the IPad open the PDF viewer app that is built in, thus no conversion, and those files you can foward with no problems.
Another thing... if the email has a 1 page PDF and any other attachment file, like .doc or .jpg, or anything other than another PDF then when the fowarder gets the email is does have all the docs, including the 1 page PDF, and some new .htm files, that came from the conversion process.
The real problem here, is that there is no option to turn off that automatic conversion thing it is doing, so while we can view and see the 1 page PDF no problem, we cannot send it out of the IPad, it is forever converted and stuck that way on the IPad.
Apple... Please fix this!!!
