    When I hit forward for an email and say include attachment, it is not forwarding the attachment.
    Has anybody figured out why this happens? Bob

    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. :D

    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.

    Do you know how I could file a picture attachment I received by email into the Photos folder on my IPad?

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

    You can copy and paste a photo from the camera roll to another album.

    Select the photo, hit the Arrow out button, select copy. Navigate to the album you want it in, long press an empty portion of the album and the paste dialog will come up, tap Paste and it is there.

    In which app is your résumé stored on your iPad? What's the name of the app?

    I had it in my email, I have it saved in Dropbox, catch, and iCloud.
    When I open my email I can either send or forward,reply,or print when I tap on the arrow. I don't understand how other people have a choice to add or insert an attachment , I put my query about attachments and this is where it sent me. Should I be on a different forum?

    Isn't it just pics from the Camera Roll you an attach internally on an email? For others you would have to send as an email from their relevant app.

    Yes, I understand that part. But is there a way to reply to a " closed " email ( where their email can not be changed in ANY way....is there a way to attach a resume with the cover letter? Or would I have to take a photo of the résumé and then copy that onto the cover letter? Is that the only way to attach it? My responding email to apply for a job is my email app which I use as a cover letter. If I inserted the photo of my résumé under the cover letter it wouldn't come across very well, at least I don't think so. I guess I will have to use the laptop to reply for jobs huh?
