Hi everybody.

When a user wants to write a new mail and add attachments to it, the user can only choose files from (Documents, Images, Videos, Music). Adding another sources or be able to choose a file from the filesystem will be nice.

For example choose from (Documents, Images, Videos, Music, Downloads, Browse File System)

+1 - Good suggestion!, I noticed this, the normal options are a little restricting, thanks!

I think this should only be enabled when the developer mode is active or it should be configurable from settings app (opt-in). So "normal" users don't get confused.

@ejjoman good point but imagine you want to send some stuff from the sdcard or from other location or whatever. The user should move the file to one of the available sources. I think this can be more confusing than enable the option to browse the file system

@corsarium good point, too :-) but should the tracker not add those files to the relevant category automatically? I don't have a sd card, so I don't know how the current situation is.

@ejjoman Just imagine, you got some files at sdcard. Where those files are indexed? documents, media.... i have to guess it. Anyway indexer does not index certain kind of files zip, rar, so you cant thrust on it.

There is already a thread/question "Enhancements to email client": https://together.jolla.com/question/319/enhancements-of-the-email-client/ the feature you requested is already mentioned there. It is better to continue the discussion there and to close this thread. What do you think? EDIT:Closed, please comment here: https://together.jolla.com/question/319/enhancements-of-the-email-client/
