I hope I'm missing something in regards to email attachments on the iPhone. Is it impossible to save an attachment for later viewing outside of the mail client? Is there really no way to send a photo attachment unless you initiate it through the photo browser? If I want to reply to an email with a photo, I need to start from scratch? I can only include one photo per email? Someone please say it isn't so!

I discovered a sort of workaround until they give us a dedicated folder for attachments:

1) Go to Yahoo on your pc -
2) sign in to your mail
3) Under folders - click "add folder"
4) name the folder "attachments" or "my documents" or whatever you want to call it
5) sync your yahoo mail from the iPhone
6) That folder should now show up on the iPhone
7) open up the email with the attachment on it
8) click the second icon from the left, the folder with the little arrow on it
9) tap the folder you created

the email with the attachment is now out of your inbox and in a dedicated folder.

It's not perfect but it's better than clogging up your inbox and its better than nothing for now
