A question for someone with a 2.0 software iphone.

What happens when you download an email with an attachment of an IMAP account.

Does it start with header, then download message if clicked, then download attachment when clicked? Or all parts at once?

Second question,

Once you've downloaded the attachment, can you still view it if not connected (i.e. no 3G or Wifi)

Cheers

1) tap-tap-tap.

2) you'll have to be connected, because of the limited amount of RAM to store temporary content.

The message itself is automatically downloaded (this only applies to Inbox, where it automatically fetches messages). The attachment has a placeholder button which you press to download the attachment.

Images are sometimes automatically downloaded, which is sometimes a pain.

Attachments are downloaded to your phone, so as long as the message isn't deleted from the iPhone, you should be able to retrieve it, even while offline.

Ignore chiefie's post as he is wrong in regards to offline email storage.

Only the message text is downloaded.  If you have attachments then it shows you their size and you can then choose to download it (or not).

Once downloaded it stays within the email message so you don't have to download it again - I just tested this in Airplance mode (with no WiFi or 3G) the attachments are still viewable.

Ok guys, which one of you is right?

I assume if manhili is right (using IMAP) you could make an attachments folder and move things you wanted to keep to that?

EDIT: thanks redroman, that makes sense.

You mean move messages to a specific folder just for attachments?

+1 - this is what worked for me for my .Mac (me) account.
when in Airplane mode I can still access all the attachments that have been downloaded

This is the easiest way to store files on the phone.. email them to yourself, download the attachment, and then file the email somewhere.

E.g., I've got a mobileprovision file with the APN set to www.vodafone.net.nz filed there. If I'm out somewhere and need to use mobile data with my prepay SIM, I open that attachment, install the profile, and go for it. Once I'm done with the data, I go back to settings and remove the profile.

Also works with PDFs, Word documents, Keynote presentations, etc.
