    What are you trying to open? And do you have the right software to be able to open that type of attachment?

    oh, now you've got me!

    example: a friend sends me a photo (jpeg) of say a cake. - this comes through to my laptop (not Mac) and opens without a problem.
    I will also get a copy of that email on my ipad (3) - next to the sender's name there is a paperclip showing the attachment.

    but i have no way of knowing how to get that photo from the email sent to my ipad. is this possible or do i need to download something else please?

    thanks for any help you can offer.

    Are you pressing the line/e-mail on the left that has the paper clip symbol on it? If you press it, the e-mail should display on the right for you to view the picture (or for you to press a dotted box to fully download the picture). Have a look at this picture for what I mean:

    Hope that helps. Holler back if that's not how your iPad is behaving...

    Mickey 330 (Marilyn) thank you so much - I have now discovered that the photo attachments arrive at the bottom of the email ( even if there are several continuing one after the other! ). I just wasn't scrolling down far enough.

    Really appreciate your help.

    one quick question if i may - when i first posted this thread i had no problem finding how to do it. it was my first visit to the forum.

    i would now like to post a different thread but cannot find the symbol/ inf on WHERE to go to start it. been through all the menu but just come back to existing threads.

    am i missing something very simple please?

    thanks for any advice you can offer.
