By Phil Templet, 13 January, 2013 Forum iOS and iPadOS How are attachments open in mail? Thanks Options Log in or register to post comments Comments mac or iOS? If it's mac mail. 1. go to file and save atatchments. 2. If it's ios. I believe you can only open on your device. I believe you can also interact with the mail atatchment and vo+shift+m for the menu. Good luck and hope this helped.
