    I use dropbox but there's no easy way to email files from it.
    You don't even get that option.
    An I missing something?

    Hmmm, I had to think about how I did this. This only works if security isn't a big deal for you:

    You need to put it in the 'Public' folder. Then, in the Dropbox app, open the file and press the little chain-links at the bottom. It will e-mail a link to that file and people can download it right from Dropbox.

    This is good for large files that you don't want to e-mail.

    This is bad for files that have to be kept secret, as it's possible for anyone to download that if they know the URL.

    So if that doesn't work for you, get that other program I linked to. It just works like a USB drive and lets you mail files, exactly the same way you do from the 'Photos' app. Same icon and everything.

    QuickOffice of Documents to Go both allow for on device storage of files and allow you to email directly from the program. I have used Doc's to Go since my day's with a Palm Treo. Stable program for the most part.
