    Does it stay on my phone until I delete the email for example a PDF?

    Also, I was browsing some stuff online and accidentally downloaded a zip file. The browser then listed all the files in the zip file. Did I actually download it to my phone? If so, where is it and how do I get rid of it? I know there is no file explorer or anything for WP7 and you cant browse the files when connected to a computer.

    It is my understanding in the example you gave the device downloads the file gives you the content from a temporary folder then the folder is deleted when you are finished with it someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Well, so far every time I go to look at the attachment it doesn't have to re-download it so I don't think that's the case right now. Maybe if I don't open the attachment for a certain amount of time?

    I have restarted my phone and it's still there.

    For now, you just can't delete temp folder and the content in it... I know, it's stupid thing. Hope MS will fix this :)

    Well if you have Adobe installed and it is a PDF, it will be there, doc files are in office, pics are going to be there in pictures. Depending on attachment type.

    How are you accessing any temp folder? There is no system access in WP7.

    You know you can't access your temp folder but you can use Zune to limit the amount of space it occupies. I did it once but I can't remember the process. I can check later when I am near my PC. Or maybe someone else knows how and can share.

    Yeah I remember / know how to do that. You go to settings, then phone, then reserved space.

    So THAT is the maximum amount of space the phone will reserve for files? Interesting. So what about this zip file I apparently downloaded through the web browser? Same deal?
