    When I compose an email in mailbox the icons (paper clip and camera) are unresponsive. This mens I cannot add a file or picture to the email? Any suggestions. I have turned on contacts and pictures in the privacy settings for mailbox.

    To add files or pictures to the email, you have to connect the app to Dropbox.

    Thanks for the suggestion but the mailbox app is linked to dropbox. Mailbox works fine on my android phone. Just since latest update on iOS running version 8.02 do I have this issue

    I haven't used the app for quite a while now. When I installed it, it asked for access to contacts, but nothing else. It's also not possible to enable it in Privacy - Photos, because it doesn't appear there. Mailbox only is able to connect to Dropbox, if you allow it.

    It's quite possible that the last update disabled or broke the connection to the Photo app.

    Thanks I think you are probably right. Will wait for next update.

    I hope that'll enable access to Photos again.
