    I downloaded “Save My Attach” to my Android today. I then sent (in 2 separate emails) two file attachments to my gmail account and accessed them both from my Android gmail app. The “Save My Attach” program seemed to work fine with the first file type of .mp3, but I got an error stating “Sorry, the attachment could not be downloaded” with the second file type of .flv (a VLC file). And, yes, I double-checked that I clicked on “Preview” and not “Download”.  Any ideas as to what might be going on?

    seems like it worked but I can’t find where it saved it.

      Search in your sdcard. Probably in download folder.

    This may sound stupid, but I have installed the application, and still I don’t see any options in my mail app to save the attachment. HTC Explorer, Gingerbread 2.3.5 I tried the various menus, and restarted the phone…any suggestions?

    Seems like a nice solution to a total no-brainer issue (wth where they thinking?), but on my Defy+, it just tells me that “The attachment could not be downloaded because this type of file cannot be displayed on the phone”. Shame.

    Just tried the ‘sdave my attach’ and it works great. For anyone with a new phone (I’ve just moved from blackberry to samsung s2), go to the app marked ‘market’ and do a search for ‘save my app’ – it installs really easily, and then when you go to the email attachment, you select ‘save my attach’ – you can rename the attachment – and if its a picture (as my first one was) if you leave as default, it saves to the ‘gallery’ as ‘dowload’.

    Hope this is useful :-)

    Thanks a damn lot man! using Gmail app on HTC Desire and no way to download attachments. this totally sorted that for me.

    now all I need is a feature to folderise my attachment in PDF viewer!
