    Default email downloads (options yes/no ?)

    Hello All,

    Does anyone know if there is an email option in the LG G2 (on sprint), to simply "view" email attachments versus always having them "download" to a device folder?

    It' a pain to always have an attachment automatically download into a folder. If you view an attachment once, it downloads to a default folder in the G2. Then, if you view the attachment again in the same email, it downloads second time, a third time, a fourth time, a fifth time, etc etc, "ad nauseam". The attachment will continue to download again, again, and yet again, each time you view it in the email.......you can end up with a lot of the same download being sent to a folder, what a waste of space and time..

    Ref:

    G2 android - ver 4.4.2
    email - POP3 type accounts
    (running the default email program with the G2)



    Thanks for any help with this question.

    Hello Stl_Knight,

    And let me guess, it's a secret isn't it?

    And that has absolutely nothing to do with what I posted, does it?

    Did you even read my original post?

    Thanks for the effort, I guess... ...

    Hmm, mine doesn't act that way. If I click on the attachment, it does download it to the Email folder and then allow me to view it. If I click again, it opens up what it already downloaded.

    There is av little "disk" button there to "save" the attachment, and this button causes it to download and save time after time.

    So, just try clicking on the attachment name instead of the download button.

    Hello Mikey47,

    Thanks, your solution did the trick.

    Once I initially download an attachment from an email in my G2 email app, if I go back to the email and want to just view the attachment again without downloading it "again", I just need to click the attachment-name only (and not the "disk-image" download button), and all is good. This way the attachment does not download again, and again, and again.

    (it looks like there is no way to "only view" attachments, without initially having to first download any attachment at least once) Unless you know of a way to do that, if so, please let me know?

    Very much appreciated Mikey47, thank you.
