    Does anyone know if there's a jailbroken or non-jailbroken app that allows you to save and edit an email attachment that's a MS Office document? I know some programs let you either save the attachment or edit documents, but none that work together without first SSH or using Wi-Fi.

    If you know of any that'd be great. I'd like to edit some email attachments while on the road. Thanks in advance.

    I think Documents to Go Exchange Edition will do this. Or, if you jailbreak, you can go with the regular Documents to Go app, install Attachment Saver and iFile from Cydia, and do the following:

    1. Save the email attachment to the iPhone's file system.
    2. Copy/move the file to the appropriate Documents to Go folder using iFile.
    3. Open & edit the file in Documents to Go.

    Yes, attachment saver and whatever MS Word editor you like from the App Store. As far as I know, nobody has made a word processor for the jailbroken iPhone.
