    Open Hotmail attachments on iPad?
    Hey there
    Is there any way to open hotmail (yeah, I know) attachments such as PDFs on the iPad?

    Thanks

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    The iPad doesn't give a flying crap what email address you have as long as:

    1. It's supported by Mail.
    2. The attachment is in a format supported by the iPad (MS Office and iWork files, PDFs, most picture formats, some movie formats, most music formats etc).

    If the answer to either criteria is "no," then no.

    The iPad mail app will open PDFs in Quick Look.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Tried to open a PDF attachment (held finger on link, clicked "open") and nothing happened. Did it open somewhere else?

    Let me rephrase: I click on the attachment and it spins the little waiting cursor. Then nothing. I hold my finger on the attachment and a window pops up: JavaScript - open link. I click on "open link" and the cursor spins again and then stops. It's doing something but I don't know what. And what/where is quick look. When I open an attachment from Mobileme it pops up in a new window so I'm confused on why it doesn't work on hotmail (I know, it's hotmail.)
