Viewing attachments

iPad displays image attachments in many commonly used formats (JPEG, GIF, and TIFF) inline with
the text in email messages. iPad can play many types of audio attachments, such as MP3, AAC, WAV,
and AIFF. You can download and view files (such as PDF, webpage, text, Pages, Keynote, Numbers,
Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents) that are attached to messages you receive.
View an attached file: Tap the attachment to open it in Quick Look. You may need to wait while it
downloads before viewing.

Open an attached file

Touch and hold the attachment, then choose an app to open it. If none of
your apps support the file, and it isn’t one that Quick Look supports, you
can see the name of the file but you can’t open it.

is saved to your Camera Roll album in the Photos app.
