    What is the attachment's file type?
    The attachments are usually at the end of the message.

    It is at the end of the message. Just scroll down to the bottom and you'll see it there...

    Does the person that sent the email have a background on it or a small pic. If they do that will be the paperclip you are seeing.

    The OP is taking about an actual PDF attachment... iPhone readable attachments are usually found at the end of the email.

    Why doesn't mail allow me to add an attachment when starting a new email or replying to one?

    You can attach photos and videos by pressing and holding, tapping the arrow on the right and then selecting Insert Photo or Video. Use DropBox if you want to attach other types of files to email.

    Just a quick question, why does Apple not allow the attachment of files in their emails. I mean you have to use third party software to do this but why do they not build it into mail and allocate a space for storing files that you can attach at your finger print without resorting to other software to do this?

    Possibly because it would rely on browsing a file system that they currently have locked down. Eventually they may add a folder for dragging and dropping files, but using DropBox to handle this for now is convenient and very easy.

    Thanks a million for your reply but it seems weird that they have all these options on a phone and disable such a feature. Perhaps it is to safeguard the device from threats but then again these third party software have their own allocated work space to store files like for example Documents by Readdle. Thanks a million again for your reply.
