    Yes - GoodReader can do this. It can attach any number of files of any type to a standard iPad Mail message. You can then type the message and add 'To' addresses from your standard contact list because it's a standard iPad Mail message.

    However, you do need to transfer the attachments that you want to send to GoodReader. No app can possibly access the file space of another app, so GoodReader can't 'see' the files space of, say, Pages or Keynote. You need to transfer the files you want to send to GoodReader first of all.

    My workaround for this is dropbox......I put the files, images, etc into drop box and generate links to them, I then send the links to the email recipient and they can then download the files themselves.

    There is an added bonus to the recipient of doing it this way in that if they are out and about and on a poor bandwidth area they don't have the issue of hogging their connection (this once happened to me when someone sent me a whole album full of photos in an email!) as they can decide when and where to download the files.
