Level 5* gazumped 9,835 Posted September 20, 2011 Level 5* Share Posted September 20, 2011 I've spent some time putting relevant emails into my notes because (using Outlook 2003 at least) I can reopen those emails and copy/ forward/ reply as though they were still stored in my local outlook. At least that works on my desktop. Just tried to embed a reservation confirmation email so I can refer to it on the road, and checked the display on my handset.. and I get an error "no activity found to handle this action". OK, no biggy; I can embed the full content instead of attaching the .MSG file to the note. But I had gotten rather fond of attaching emails, because the layout and the headers tend to take up a lot of display real estate, and can lead to l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-n-g notes. Scanning down a list of brief comments plus attachments like - (date )Hotel confirmation(date) Hotel booked means I have an audit trail that I can dig deeper into if I need to. So: Dear Santa Elephant - please could you look at including some way to read email files if they're embedded as attachments? Thankx PS - any chance of some kind of warning / error message in the app to say "you can't open these files"? Might have forwarned me about this before I saved so many emails into my notes! (NB: not complaining, just constructively observing!) Link to comment
