    Thanks to a member here, I downloaded Skyfire app and went into Yahoo, found Yahoo Mail, signed in. Surprise Surprise!! My homepage shows up EXACTLY on my Xoom as it does on my laptop! You can operate it the same as on a PC .. attachments and gives you a choice of Image Files or Audio Files. Thank you Skyfire Browser app

    So has anyone figured out how to attach a file? Like mentioned above it is only allowing me to attach photos.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Why can't I select files to attach to an email???????

    No I haven't found an answer to this - it's really frustrating and frankly driving me to bringing my Xoom back to the shop. How ridiculous that you can't simply attach a file to an email other than an item from the gallery!!!!

    Come on Motorola, get it sorted - Someone please tell me why I canít or how I can - I'm getting really bored of the attitude that I have to download yet another app to set up yet another email address to log into yet another system just to send a file. ggrrrrrrrrr

    Unhappy!

    What options do you get when attaching? I get both Gallery as well as my Fire Explorer (Root Explorer in my case). When I use the explorer option, it let me attach a short MP3 file, as well as a document. Should work with the free file explorer apps out there as well, which also give you the advantage of browsing the files on your device.

    Remember to post the solution that worked to solve your problem so you can help others with their problems later.

    I am having the same problem. What is most frustrating is that it has been working fine for the last six months and only now is refusing to let me attach anything but a picture.

    I have both Astro and Adao file managers. Adao shows the file when I attempt to attach but then will only open it, not attach. Astro when selected from the attachment choice (in either outlook or G-mail) shows the directory but NOT pdf's or Word documents. In other uses Astro shows all the files and allows them to be accessed. Gallery, or course works fine and lets what it sees, i.e., pictures attach.
