i have received a mail with an attachment. i click on download, it gets downloaded. i click on open and get the error: file count be found. i open documents app and can see the document and can view it in app. so document is there and downloaded, the link in mail app seems broken...

it seems to be due to the filename, it contains some special chars: # _ and [] and looks like this:


it came from agoda btw., not from hinz und kunz

edit retag flag offensive close delete




Even worse: e-mail app accepts a file like 'some[num].txt' as attachment but it gets lost on sending. Receiver will not see the attachment and in Sent folder it is also without attachment. Tested with special character [ and ].

So I propose to change title to [bug] and name it more general like [bug] e-mail app cannot handle attachment names with pecial characters

BTW: I do know Hinz and Kunz (whereas I would not expect that from majority of community :))!

But I needed to search for 'agoda'!
