If you send or receive emails on your Mac, then you might run into an attachment on occasion. For some file types, OS X displays the attachment inline with text, but in the case of high-resolution images, this can sometimes impact email readability.
Since using my iPad in a more productive way for the past couple of weeks, a few problems I never really had to deal with before started started popping up. File management is one of them.
I’ve recently shared my workflow for downloading files from a web browser, as well as saving attachments from the Mail app on iOS, so naturally, I want to talk about attaching files and documents to an email in the Mail app on iPhone or iPad. Read More
Downloading email attachments to your iPhone or iPad is not complicated per say, but it’s not very straightforward either. Over the course of the years, many third-party email apps have actually seen this as an opportunity and started offering easier and better ways to handle attachments. However, Apple has slowly closed the gap, and even if there is still no user-accessible file system on iOS, it is now easier than ever to save an email attachment.
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not perfect quite yet.
In this post, we’ll show you how to save attachments from emails received via the Mail app on iPhone or iPad. Read More
Not too long ago, we showed you how you could use Markup in iOS to add some annotations to your email attachments before firing them off to their recipient(s).
This feature is also present in OS X and later, and is just as powerful, if not more so. It’s even compatible with various file types including but not limited to images and PDF files.
One of the major features that shipped with iOS 9 was Markup, better known for the ability to draw on and annotate attachments of various file types that you receive in the Mail app and then send them back to the original sender, or someone else for that matter.
Despite how useful this feature is, few people actually use it, either because they don’t know it exists or they don’t know how to access it. In this tutorial, we’ll take you through how to access it and cover some of the features it provides. Read More
Just like the Messages app in iOS, the Messages app in OS X allows you to send and receive attachments via iMessage or SMS. Over time, these attachments can take up a lot of storage space and even keep a running history of the things you’ve been sending and are receiving if they’re not dealt with.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can go through your attachment history in your Messages conversations to delete unwanted attachments that are eating up your storage space. Read More
Over time, attachments add up, taking up valuable storage space on your device and keeping a paper trail of everything you’ve sent and received to one another.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how you can easily bulk delete attachments from a conversation in the Messages app without deleting the entire conversation. Read More
Similar to a feature that first made its way to the Mail app under OS X Yosemite, iOS 9 now includes Markup, a tool that lets you annotate email attachments, including image files as well as PDFs, effectively turning the Mail app into a more powerful one with a growing focus on productivity.
Just like its OS X counterpart, Markup for iOS 9 allows you to sketch, zoom, add text, and sign documents on the go. Absent from the list of annotations is the Shape button, which lets you easily insert squares, circles, etc.
Markup for iOS 9 works for both incoming or outgoing attachments, meaning that you can annotate either the attachments you receive, or those that you send. This seems to actually go hand in hand with another new iOS 9 feature that lets you attach documents from iCloud Drive. Read More
iOS 9 offers a new feature that allows you to save attachments received via emails to iCloud Drive. Similar to the way iOS currently lets you save email attachments to third-party services such as Dropbox or Google Drive, this new feature takes advantage of the Share extension, bringing a new Save Attachment icon for easy sharing to your iCloud Drive.

Good news today for AnyAttach fans. The popular jailbreak tweak, which allows you to attach any file available on your iOS device to an outgoing e-mail, has been updated to support iOS 6.
Attachments+ for Mail is a new jailbreak tweak that modifies iOS’s stock Mail app to be able to handle a wide array of attachments. It integrates directly with libfinder to provide an iFile-like interface to peruse iOS’ native file structure.
Attachments+ for Mail allows you to attach files of any type directly from the file system by means of the copy and paste menu. The ability to preview files, attach multiple files, and compress files prior to attaching, is also present. Check out our full video walkthrough of the tweak in action inside… Read More
Although you can’t use Attacher to send unsupported files, it’s still a great free solution for those cases when someone insists on sending one to you… Read More
iOS is a bit on the limited side when it comes to sending a multitude of emails from the Camera Roll. Apple has limited users to just 5 photo attachments if users want to use the built in email sharing option.
Fortunately, jailbreaking exists to get rid of such limitations. Check inside for a video walkthrough of Mail More Photos, a tweak that allows one to send a seemingly infinite amount of photos via email… Read More
The concept of attaching a file to a file to an email is practically as old as email itself. With the iPhone, you can attach photos and videos to your email, but that’s pretty much where the fun ends.
This works fine for stock iOS installations where access to the native file system is restricted. For jailbroken iPhones, however, it’s a definite limitation; hence the need for a jailbreak tweak like AnyAttach.
AnyAttach is a tweak that allows you to attach any file present on iOS’s file system, directly to your outgoing email… Read More
