Default Saving attachments for editing on BB

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to save attachments to the BB memory or media card from email messages? I somehow recall being able to do this (to the BB memory) with my old 8700c, but cannot do it at all with the 8310. I understand that with Documents to Go, which will be on the new 4.5, it will be possible to edit MSWord docs. Will Documents to Go "see" the Word attachments in email messages? I've heard that the editing will be done only via BES (I don't have BES) and that otherwise you will have to upload any documents from a PC to the BB before editing them. This, of course, tends to defeat the purpose--you might as well edit them on the PC.

Thanks.

Yes, you can save certain attachments that are supported by the OS... Docs2Go will be free for viewing and limited editing for BIS users. You will need a subscription for creating and more advanced editing... at least that is how I understand it for now, and it is subjext to change, of course.

OK--Thanks.

But I'm confused as to how to actually save any attachment. When I first open an email on the BB, in the menu there is an option to "save"--to save the email, not the attachment, per se. I think that just means that the entire email will still be there after the others from that date are deleted, say, in 30 days. But how do I save a Word attachment to the memory or to the media card? Or can't it be done?
