I have a new IPhone 3G setup to my Exchange server for work use. I have to work abroad and around the UK a lot and what I want to do is the following:

I want to be able to receive my emails with attachments (XLS, DOC, PPT, PDF etc) which obviously I can view on my IPhone, but I need to download the attachment to my laptop, edit it, upload it back to the iphone to email on again.

This is working on the fact that I have mail access on my iphone but no email access or web access on my laptop so just using a web email on the laptop is no good.

Is there a way of downloading the received email attachments via itunes or is there an App or something. I have tried FielMagnet but this is no good as it needs to connect to a network, but obviously I wont be able to do this unless I am in an office or at a cloud - in which case I could just get on via the company VPN.

Any ideas or help would be very, very welcomed!

hmm, well there are file programs out there but I dont think the emails are stored in single files. You might be able to do what you want by syncing emails via itunes. You might be able to get the files on your computer, then send them via outlook, then sync via itunes and it might sync to the outbox folder and then the iphone would send them?

Try that and if you dont know how i can explain it, i dont know if this will work, its kinda just a theory but it might work.
