Default Email Attachments

Ok, I understand that when someone sends me a doc, pdf, or xls email attachment the BlacbBerry can't open it unless I buy software to let me do so. But why can't I just download the file and keep it on the BlackBerry as storage?

Also, and more importantly... When I get an email with a JPG attachment I can't see the JPG. And I know the BlackBerry supports JPGs because I already got a ton loaded on it.

There is a very good topic posted as a sticky on the General Blackberry Discusion Forum. "Update FAQ . . .". It has a lot of links to topics one of which will explain this. I suggest you search the Forums for "attachments", and read through the first 10 threads that come up.

Remember, Search is Your Friend!

Hope this helps.
