Whenever I get an email that has a photo attached to it and I hit preview, I get the photo. If I get another email and I hit the same preview button, I get this photo from the previous email even know it is saying it has downloaded it. The small icon shows the new photo but the larger preview always shows the old photo. Even when I download it to the device it is the same , older photo.
It seems like the photo stays in the cache and unless I reboot, I can't see the new attached photo. I don't want to load a cleaner because I want to keep all my passwords/cookies etc.
I just got the Captivate, and I am having difficulty viewing attachments (Low kb excel spreadsheets and word documents). The weird thing is, it let me open one excel sheet once as what looked like an html instead of excel, which is fine as long as I can see it, but this hasn't happened since and it wasn't any particular thing different that I did. What should I do? Is it a bug with my specific phone?
when receiving pictures through gmail (I simply use the gmail app) they don't automatically appear in the email, like it does on my girlfriends Captivate through the gmail app. She didn't do anything special, just set up email and when she receives pics when she opens the email they're just there. Now there is the download and preview button next to the attachments but when I hit those my phone just says "fetching attachment, please wait". I've left my phone for at least 5 minutes and it will just sit on that screen. On one pic I did let it sit for a few minutes, gave up waiting, but noticed the pic later in my dowloaded folder. But this is the only pic it's done that with. So I would a way to get the pics to just show up in my email when I open the email, or not have to wait minutes on end for a pic to maybe get downloaded. I feel like there should be some solution without me having to download some app, since my girl's phone can do it.
I am wondering if there is a way to clear the cache and no I don't mean partion cache wipe of all apps except one? I used some apps but they clear all of them. The reason I ask is because QuickPic loads the thumbnails of my photos and when I clear the cache it takes forever to load all the thumbnails for my photos and then drains my battery while doing so.
a friend sent me an sms with a ringtone attached. The file d'loaded ok but I cannot for the life of me find where it downloaded to I am thinking I will perhaps have a similar problem with email attachments.I have read the manual section on attachments but can't say I am any wiser.Where might it be hiding, and if I do find it, how would I add it to my ringtones pls?
I just downloaded the media hub update today and noticed that now when i get a text message my notification light stays solid instead of blinking...This is annoying because it could cause the battery to drain and it just looks weird...Is there any setting i can mess with, or has anyone else had this problem? I also notice that when i text i don't hear the typing anymore. It's just silent until i click send...Kind of weird...I'm thinking about uninstalling and re-installing handcent..
Anyone else having issues with the screen staying on? I hit the power button on the side to turn off the screen and it pops right back on within seconds. Also how do you get the screen to lock? particularly during a call so i don't hang up on them.
I got my google mail working and my Exchange account for my email.When I first looked at my exchange account I was happy to see that I could open a PPT document. I thought great news! However last night ( 3 days later) I could not open a document for the life of me, it keeps stating "fetching from server". My email stays on the server so its not like that original email was deleted. My gmail account opens up the attachment just fine (did a test) so does anyone know why I cannot open an attachment in my Exchange email (corporate app)?
On My Samsung Captivate (AT&T) I can forward emails with attachments, but the attachments do not show up when I open the forwarded email. I am using the native Email app for my phone. I have seen several threads about this but none were any help a all. Does anyone know the REAL issue with this problem?
I've hit my first real usability snag with the G1.I tried to send a word processing file to someone via the gmail client on the G1 today, and found that I could select only photos and no other file type for attachments.So I fired up the browser and went to the desktop version of the gmail web site, and in the composition window, the button under the attachments section is captioned "Uploads Disabled" instead of the usual "Browse."Does anyone have a workaround for emailing non-jpeg attachments? This is a feature that I need to use on practically a daily basis. Any developers out there working on an email client, please support this feature.
I'm relativley new to Android. I've got an HTC Desire & most of my incoming emails are not on a googlemail address.I've never been able to open email attachments for example today I've recieve a message showing a 300kb jpg image attachment. I've previoulsy noticed that I cannot open PDFs or MS Word docs - I do have the PDF viewer & Quick office installed.
I did a search and found something similar, however, the thread turned into a debate why attachments are bad.I emailed myself a jpg attachment and was able to download and view the pic. However, I do not know how to save the pic to use it as wallpaper.
I'm trying to email a few pics and a video i took on my phone to myself and it just shows up in my outbox. How long does it take to email attachments like this? I even turned on wifi cause i thought it might require wifi like youtube does
I returned my Droid some time ago because I could not forward customer blueprints and inquiries on ot my plants. The files were imp. tif. jpg. excel and word. I was told by Verizon that the phone might do it after some further updates. What is the real deal here. Will 2.1 fix this? I went back to my 2 year blackberry becaue the email was far more reliable and I could forward whatever came in with the emails I got. Is Android not ready for the business market yet, or have things changed since the Droid intro.
I cannot open email attachments of any type using the stock email or TouchDown app, which I use to pull email from my job's Exchange Server. Email functions fine otherwise. I can see that an email has an attachment, but when i click to download, the process begins then always ends with the message 'Not implemented". This happens will all file types.
I'm on my 2nd captivate and both of these bugs have happened on both phones.
First being the backlight remaining on unless I lock the phone manually. This will happen even with the backlight auto turn off set to 30 seconds. This has happened a handful of times, and I can make the backlight turn off if I want by using the lock key, but it will never auto turn off. This is fixed by power cycling the phone.
Second, my notification volume. I've noticed a few times that I'll have a text or something waiting on my phone for which I didn't hear the notification tone. When I go to the phones settings I find that the notification volume is down around 25% instead of the 75% or so I keep it set at. This seems to happen randomly.
Is anyone else having problems watching / viewing wmv files sent as email attachments? On the rare occasions that I can it usually only plays the sound with no video. Tried both HTC mail and Gmail app.
I have my yahoo account setup in the android email app. Thanks to a previous post got it working beautifully.. when i click an email that has an image attachement and chose the Save function, its then shows the crash/error messege "The application Email (process com.android.email) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."Ive tried numerous emails in my yahoo account with pics and it crashes it every time. No idea why. When i open an image in my gmail account using the gmail app its saves fine.
I emailed myself a couple of ringtones (.mp3 format). small files ~30 kb. When I go to gmail on my phone, the ringtones are there in the email as attachments. I can "Preview" and they play fine, but I get no "Download" option.
Did a search first. Is there any way to name an email attachment? Whenever my wife emails me a picture of our dogs (no kids so these are our kids) it always comes through as "photo" so when I download it saves as that. Now if I don't go back into the picture viewer and rename it the next time i try to save a photo attachment it tries to overwrite the last one as its comes in as "photo". Is there any easier way of renaming these attachment without having to go into picture viewer and renaming the last one first? Basically I'm want to do a "save as"
I was notified by one of my customers that she was unable to use the feature of my application where she is supposed to be able to send her data as an attached csv file to an email. When I run this on my emulator at home, it works. She reports that she's using the GMail client. I'm not clear on what that is. I'm using the standard way of attaching a file.
There are a couple of exceptions. I notice that other examples of attachments on the group use the SD Card to save the file before sending it. Because of the section on files in this article:
I chose to use the internal file storage. I do not anticipate the files my application produces ever exceeding 200 KB.
So, does writing the files to internal storage only work on some phones? Should that be mentioned in the above-referenced article? It seems kind of important, since everyone seems to be using external SD Cards and not the internal memory.
I am trying to send an attachment through email. When composing the email, everything looks great (attachment seems to be included and ready to send). However, the attachment does not get received on the other side.
