    Hello Guys,

    iam on WIndows Phone and mobile since 3 Years now and with Windows 10 Mobile i cant open PDF Mail Attachments. I will show you what happens in the Screenshots.

    So it seems my Windows 10 Mobile thinks my file dont have a file extension. As you can see in the screenshot where i try to save the attachment you see the extension in file name and the os dont understand it as the file extension.

    Some Ideas how to solve this problem?

    I already installed the PDF Reader and the Files App from Microsoft.

    This might be a stupid question but what if you delete the extension?

    And have you tried downloading attachments using the browser? Like edge or UC browser?

    it might just be a temporary error, maybe it will get resolved in the next update

    two big updates are done so far and nothing happens. i think this error wont get solved... seems to be misconfiguration of my system. i resetet my phone to factory defaults about 2 month ago and updated to windows 10 mobile with a fresh installation without restoring of apps and so on. I got a Lumia 925 by the way.
