    Isn't this thing supposed to open all the types of files that are supposed to work in doc view and pdf view? And what about WAVs and WMVs etc. It seems almost totally random as to what does and does not open as an email attachment and I am running at about 30%. Not too good.

    At least you guys are getting the attachments. For me, 9 out of 10 emails I receive that SHOULD have attachments don't when viewed on my Pre.

    What I've found is that if the Pre recognizes a file type it will download the attachment, but if it doesn't... it won't. The problem is that when I get an email with multiple attachments and even one of those attachments isn't recognized, then I get NONE of the attachments. I'm not happy with this at all.

    If I'm doing something wrong, please tell me what setting I need to change to get the pre to download all attachments even if I can't open them on the phone. I can worry about that part later...

    I always at least got them. And since I started this thread I got WebOSQuickInstall and some stuff with it and I think it may have solved that problem. I have not noticed it lately. It comes with some other tweaks as well. Might want to check it out...
