API to create emails with an attachment
Modify the email launcher API to add an attachement
Currently while replying to emails, not able to attach documents other than photos. This hampers email productivity.
I feel Email Apps should allow document(Docx,Excel and PDf) Document attachment either from local/Skydrive
I would like to attach more than an image from a new email or text message. I want to start a new email, and when I press the attachment icon, I want the choice to chose a document(s)
It is not possible to attach documents to a reply or attach a document if you start the mail in the mail app, rather than in the Office Hub.
It would be great if you could enable selecting other attachments than pictures in the mail app for new emails and replys.
Currently, it is too costly (implementation + operational costs) to send an attachment. An app should be possible to create a file (say a .kml file) in isolated storage and then pass the filename to EmailComposeTask.
Thank you for the suggestion and commentary. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release as an API, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
Keep those suggestions and votes coming!
Need to attach docs (one or more .pdf,.doc,.docx, .xls) to reply mail. This is a must feature for the Lumia phones to use for email purpose.
Please MS, please do this one feature.

I gothrough that there is no option in that class library.

DONE !!! We developed LiveMailMessage library to send emails with any type of attachment :)
See here :
To send emails with any kind of attachment from a WP7 or WP8 app directly to Microsoft Hotmail SMTP server , you can use this component: http://www.windowsphonegeek.com/marketplace/components/livemailmessage

need it as well.
This is absolutely 'wonderful', seems typical to the company to implement crippled method. Fortunately there is workaround - altough bit cumbersome but working. One could base encode attachment to the message body.
Please see this article.

Just maybe silly question, but anybody here who desperately need this feature consider using webservice for this?

Of course: API for manage mail attachments is a MUST.
I hope you implement this option. Most people will be prevented from buying if still unable to send a pdf, or video, or any other documents generated or stored in the phone. Android is not as elegant, but it seems more practical.
i need it
Please MS I need this! If it is not implemented into Windows Phone 8 it is going to be very tempting just to stop supporting WP and go android, sorry.
