    You have to think opposite from what you are used to when you are e-mailing from the iPad. You have to be in the application that contains the file and open/start an e-mail from there - this is opposite from a "regular" computer where you start in the mail applications and then go get the file. The iPad doesn't share files like a computer.

    That said, what is it that you are trying to e-mail? Whatever it is, have that file open in the app. Usually, somewhere in the app is an option to e-mail. Select that option and you'll usually get an e-mail pop-up so you can fill out the mail details. Then, you an send it.

    Thank you!

    No, you can't attach to an e-mail to which you are replying. The best thing to do is, in the Mail app, press the button as if you are replying. Then, copy the whole e-mail, then open the app that contains the file you want to attach. Then, within that app, start an e-mail and paste what you copied from the Mail app. That way, it'll look as if you are replying.

    Yes, it's a bit of a cluster, but it's what we've got. Sorry.

    Doubt it. It hasn't been mentioned in the upcoming features but anything is possible. Mickey's advice above is right on for now. Open file, look for option to email that file is the only way at present.
