K-9 Mail does load attachments only on request. But your problem is not only the Client, it's more the protocol used for retrieving E-Mail: POP3 does not support the partial download of an E-Mail without their attachment(s), whereas IMAP does. Besides of that IMAP has some nice extensions when it comes to mobile usage: Lemonade Profiles
In case this helps someone with the same problem, I have the solution : I had to check the Settings - Wireless and network - Mobile network - Use packet data check box. When this was done, I could send picture MMS messages. Maybe obvious for some .. but it sure was one setting I thought I should not need just to send an MMS message.
You could check your MMS APN settings, they can be found in Settings -> Wireless and network -> Mobile networks -> Access point names. There should be some reference to MMS settings and it should have your operator's MMS settings. Also, check out the settings found in Messaging -> Menu button -> Settings -> Multimedia message (MMS) settings ...
As far as I know this was a new addition to the app recently, so it's surprising that it doesn't work for you. I just tried emailing myself a .epub file and it worked just fine, I had a Download button to the right of the paperclip icon and attachment name. I know that the Browser on many devices won't let you download any files that don't have a handler ...
I assume you have a Belgian carrier? Some sites you can check for MMS settings: BASE and Simyo: http://googleandroidwiki.com/index.php/Carrier:APN_List#Belgium_Carriers Proximus: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=544312 Mobistar and others (in the listing): http://androidforums.com/2146157-post2.html
I had a similar problem in the UK with Orange after I rooted my phone. Settings all looked correct. Deleting the two APN profiles that were there and re entering them by hand following instructions on a page similar to those provided by @Matthew Read fixed it. I urge you to try deleting and re-entering the APN's by hand.
When in the message window, "long press" the image (hold your finger down on the image for a second or two) and a menu should pop up giving you the option to download or save the attachment. When you go to your gallery you'll usually see attachments you've downloaded in a folder called "Downloads" or "Messaging."
Regular android messaging apps tend to disallow files other than image/video. I use Tmail by Phonelight available from Google Play Store: Tmail breaks the restrictions of all the Messaging apps. It is the only app that allows the user to attach any kind of file to an MMS message. You are now not limited to image, audio or video file. Tmail has expanded ...
Though not the identical issue, the solution provided with the question Download stuck in Gmail solves it as well: Clear the cache of the Download manager. To do so, go to Settings→Apps→Manage Apps, switch to the "All" Tab, scroll to the "Download Manager". Tap that entry, and hit the button labeled "Clear Cache". Optionally, also tap "Clear ...
Both the POP3 and your email client are issues. As prior poster pointed out, POP3 doesn't support partial downloading. However, many email clients do support limiting message download size. By setting up the right limit, you can just download message but not the attachment. When you click on attachment, you'll be asked whether you want to download the ...
