    I was sent an email with a very important file. I opened and got what I wanted. But today I went back, as I saved that email, and the attachment is not there.

    So ~ when I opened it, because it went to another screen to open it, Hell. I think it did ~ I was in a meeting and very distracted.:mad:

    It downloaded, somewhere ~ where is it? I so need it back.:(

    Am I missing something?

    Need more info.
    Gmail or other? Is the email still on the server ? I ask that because I auto forward a copy of all my Verizon mail to a Gmail account and when I check my mail the Gmail has the attachment but I have to go "fetch" it from Verizon. I don't save the original Gmail on the server when I delete from the Ipad or phone but my Verizon I save . Maybe you can fetch it again?
    PDF or other? Maybe it's in ibooks?

    I'm not familiar with most of the Office type apps and most attachments I save go into photos since they are photos.
    Lemme go mail something to myself and see where it saves. I'll post back unless someone beats me to it.

    The .doc gave Dropbox,icab,istorage,TagdiskHD.
    Hope that helps.

    It isn't " archived" on gmail is it?
    Dunno what to ask you to check. That's just the few I have. If you've got good reader, Evernote, etc there could be more

    Go into your mail app, tap the gmail account on "accounts" look at "all mail" it's the black hole of all my deleted and archived mail until I delete them about once a year on the desktop gmail version
    I'm actually not brilliant, just too techno ignorant to know I can't do that

    Okay ~ I am there....But what do you mean "it's the black hole of all my deleted and archived mail"

    Is that where our archived mail goes?:eek:

    In there my email is there, but it doesn't have the attached PDF with it. WTH? If this was on my computer it would...

    Yes that's where all my archived mail goes. Don't know why or how to change it.
    I have 0 idea why the attachment isn't there. That's just weird, it should have kept the attachment as far as I know. Again I'm a tech challenged individual, am usually over my head beyond the start button and sometimes that gives me problems
    Perhaps the desktop gmail has it?
    I think the appropriate acronym is WTFrank?
    Sorry I couldn't be of more help and when you find it please post back where you found it.

    I lied. I remembered, Mark! I love it! Here is my desktop. I just need to know what else I can use it for.

    Now ~ can I leave the house and still access my desktop?

    Cross post.
    Yes whatever, and I mean whatever, you can do on the desktop you can now do on the Ipad. Your finger becomes the mouse and the keyboard built in blows the Ipad one away, it's in the lower right if you need it.

    With keyboard open, with closed, Madelyn playing a Flash game on the iPad.
    The other day I was waiting in line at the grocery store, didn't have my iPad so I was using Team Viewer on my phone ( same basic thing) and I uploaded some photos on my desktop to Dropbox then downloaded them to my phone from Dropbox just to kill time. When I got home I downloaded them to my iPad.
    I use Oulook often ( saves me from having to buy apps), MSOffice2010 ( same thing) did an ITunes update( 10.2 from 10.1) from the iPad the other day , change the desktop settings, add and remove programs, changed my desktop wallpaper and slideshows screen saver, and I'm sure other stuff I don't remember off the top of my head.
    On the desktop access the Splashtop icon at the bottom right, settings, experimental features, enter your gmail account and give yourself a password. Now when away from home it somehow uses your gmail to find your ip address and port.
