    Are you using the native email app? If so you cannot attach a file directly from the program itself. What you have to do is go to whatever you are trying to send, for example a picture, you would go to your camera roll select the picture then hit the little forward arrow thing that brings up several option and one is send as email. That is the only way to do it via the native email app without jailbreaking. That is why i switched to the gmail app which has many more of these options built into it...

    I see. I did not realize they were missing an email sharing feature.

    If you don't want or need to edit the documents you can use GoodReader to view, store, and email most document types. It is handy for other things as well.

    No idea. It does go down every now and then, but usually recovers in a few minutes.
