I emailed myself an epub the other day and went to the GMail app (v 2.3.5) on my android phone to download it.
While it showed me the attachment, I could not figure out how to download it. The email shows a pretty paperclip icon next to it, and at the bottom of email I get another pretty icon with a paperclip. But I cannot click(/press) on it. There is no preview/download button. The menu has no option to download it.
So my question is, is it actually possible?
I've seen a fair bit on forums suggesting it is not, but those are fairly dated threads. It seems somewhat inconceivable to me that one would not be able to download an attachment - as one person has put it, this seems like a feature shortcoming that is bordering on a bug.
