    I just slapped myself on the back of my head!
    How did I miss this one!
    For months, I have occasionally had problems opening email attachments ... some not all.
    Especially with Gmail.
    My son would send me attachments from his Iphone ... no luck.

    Then today it occurred to me that maybe the problem is with the file type of the attachment.
    Glory be to ___.
    I could not open PNG, GIFF, TIFF and other types.

    Installed the viewer app: Fast Image Viewer
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....fivfree&hl=en

    Problem solved.
    And it is a good viewer app as well.

    Gallery, Photos & QuickPic apps are not enough for these file types.

    Good tip, thanks! Before you installed that app, what would happen when you tried to open those files? Would it give you an error message saying that there wasn't any app that could open the file?

    Gmail would display a progress bar like it was trying to open the file, but the meter would never go above 0%. I always got tired of waiting, and went back to the Inbox.
