    How can I add files to email such as gmail or my works Outlook Web Access email? I tried it in mercury browser, goodreader and safari. None allowed it. The attach file button was grayed out. Not sure what I am doing wrong or if its even possible?

    If not possible do I have to setup my email accounts with the ipad email client and then if I do will that let me attach files?

    Well I know that in gmail, the attach button is made in Flash. We know that Flash isn't supported in iOS. But if you go into gmails settings on a computer, you can disable the flash buttons effects. Then maybe you can use the attach button.

    Otherwise, you may have to use the Mail app to send attachments.
