        The file attachments from device is very hard because of difficulty in find the necessary file .

        I have an SD card in my Android phone. It is configured as external storage so that I can read it with other devices (when configured as internal storage, it is tied to that device and cannot be used even in an identical phone). I do not have the ability within Outlook to attach a file from that SD Card. All of my documents and photos are on that device.

        Hi

        I have been trying to create emails using the Android https://t.co/YEXKwHbOfw app and wish to attach files that are stored on my phone. I have files in both phone memory and on SD card. When I use the paperclip button and choose from device files, it shows folders but does not display any of the contents of my Documents folder (which does contain files .docx, .xls & .ppx as well as sub folders).

        I do not get an option of phone memory at all.

        I have tried other email apps and they do allow files etc. to be picked and added to my mail. How can I do this with the Android App?

        Note that I can attach via the Outlook web app, which is what I do EVERYTIME I need to reply with an attachment.
        It really defeats the point of a mobile app.

        It is a pain to select files from a folder without any sort of sorting available. I have to keep scrolling on an on to locate the file I want to attach. Also, multiple attachments should be supported. And please, please don't embed pictures into the e-mail automatically. It should be added as an attachment like any other file type.

        When in the app it's not possible to add anything on my external sd card, since no sd card is shown

        As oppose to just the default system ringtones, also permit selection of any audio file present on the file system if the user has a File Manager program like ES File Explorer installed. Gmail is an example of email app that currently permits the aforementioned functionality.

        your current system enables me to get to the folder I want but once there I just have a long list of file names. I want to be able to use my Android file system which in the folder I generally have the ability to sort by date by title Etc and usually has icons to indicate whether it's a photo file PDF file Etc. thank you.

        you cannot access other apps for photo attachments. In the event of an accident your current feature is WORTHLESS.

        Few months the options were much easy to find the desirable file to attach, also try to provide preview of attachment
