    You have to think opposite of how you normally would send an e-mail. On the iPad, you have to be in the app from which you want to send the e-mail - versus being in the e-mail program and searching for the attachment.

    For example, if you want to send a picture, you have to be in the Photos app. From there, you select the photos you wish to mail and an e-mail pop-up will appear for you to fill in the contact information. Then, when the e-mail is gone, you will still be in the Photos app.

    Again, it's just the opposite as that on a personal computer. Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

    Chasing Marilyn around today.

    Same applies in Pages. You can send Pages docs as PDFs or DOCs directly from the program.

    One thing you cannot do is forward an email with your own attachment.
