Won't Open Large File Attachment
What is the file size limit for an attachment? I found out I can email my home made video files to my own address then open the file in ipad and save the file to my photo album as a video. However, when the video file exceeds certain size, the attachment refuses to be opened:(. Is there a way to open a large attachment file?

Downloading .doc Files - Open A Link To A .doc File From The Internet And Open It With A Word Processing App
I've been searching for awhile but haven't found an answer yet: is it possible to open a link to a .doc file from the Internet and open it with a word processing app on the iPad?

I believe pages does this, but I was wondering if that's for certain and if any other word processing apps, like quickoffice, do it as well. This is for school use: I want to download a word document and edit it on my iPad, then save it to my dropbox account. I don't want to spend all the money on an app just to experiment to see if it will work the way I need it to.

Unable To Open File / File Size Limited For PDF Documents
It seems that the iPad has a limit of 30MB for displaying PDF files. This is rather small. Did Apple set this limit, or is there a technical reason for doing so.

Reduce Photo File Size For E-mailing As Attachment?
Is there a way to reduce photo sizes for e-mailing as an attachment? It's very easy to change to large, medium, or small in Mail or iPhoto on an Apple laptop or desktop computer, but I'm not sure if it's even possible on an iPad 2. As it is, it seems the iPad 2 can only attach about five photos taken with the iPad 2 Camera app, and trying to send an e-mail with that many seems to bog down and fail.

Is it possible to reduce the photo file size for e-mailing as attachment?

Mail Attachment / Unable To Open
Have a question for u guys. I have both pages, and office HD AND out of the two I much prefer to use office HD for opening doc attachments in mail. However since I installed pages after office HD it seems to only show 'open with pages if I receive attachments in email.

Does anyone know how I can change it so only office HD IS used to open docs?!

Get Emails With A .WMV Attachment - Open With Good Reader ?
I get emails with a .WMV attachment. When I try to open it asks: "Open with Good Reader". But when I go to that app can't start video. Does the iPad not play .WMV (sorry to sound ignorant on subject but does this have to do with Flasn not working on the iPad)?

IPad 2 :: Unable Access Mail After Open Attachment
I'm new to iPad 2, and it is my first Apple/MAC device. I've downloaded the PDF support document but can't find answer to this problem. (BTW, I found that loading to Books app provides most efficient access to support doc.)

Problem: I sent an excel spreadsheet from Windows 7 laptop to iPad via Yahoo mail. I was happy to see I could open it, but now it won't go away! I must have chosen an application with which to open, but don't remember what it was. I've clicked here and there on the spreadsheet but find no way to close it. I can't view my mail.

Downloading A Video File Straight To It?
I've just produced a training DVD for my company and they have added a downloadable MP4 version to their website (computer users can right click on the link and 'save as')...

Am I right in thinking the only way to get the MP4 files on to an iPad or iPhone is to download with a computer, import into iTunes and then sync?

I'm assuming there is no right-click equivalent on idevices that lets you download video files right into the videos app via a web browser, thus bypassing the need for a computer?

App To Open An .eml File
The .eml files that I received were all from APPLE. They were sent to me as receipts. In order to save and read the eml files on the iPad I had to buy an app to open those and Klammer does do that. Why would Apple send me receipts in an .eml format when the iPad device doesn't open them automatically? I still have not found any way to save and open up receipts in an mht format sent by Air Canada. Those files are just being held in my mail box until I can figure out a way to file them in GoodReader so I can then open and read them in future.
