It depends on the file type of the attachment and how you want to use the copy. If it's a PDF file, you can optionally open it with iBook for offline storage, especially useful if you have a wi-fi only iPad and you're not within range of a wi-fi access point. There are other document reader apps for the iPad which will work with file formats not readble by iBooks. I use GoodReader.

Please provide additional detail if this doesn't help.

Jason,

iOS does not save files in an open area as does Windows and OSX. Each application has it's own 'Sandbox' where it saves its data.

If you have an application that is able to open the file type that your attachment is in, it should be launchable directly from the email as long as you are running iOS 4.2 or better,

Hi SlackerBoy,

I'm aware of that, thank you.  I was asking the Asker what s/he was trying to do...copy the entire file, copy the text from the file, move the file to a location so something else can be done, or what.  The question is a little light on detail.

My bad - I read over it quickly, I thought you were the original poster!

I think the answer is...when you open attachement, on the top right corner of the attachement there is an icon that will ask you to open/edit with which program (that you have installed). When you click, it will pop up a list of compatible apps...you select one and then you can save it within that apps file structure.

Sorry, I didn't give enough background on the problem.
 From my desktop I emailed myself (@Yahoo.com) with some attachments (PDF and text TXT files).
I wanted to open the attachments onto the iPad and then save them there for future study.
I can get the Yahoo emails on the iPad but the following error message occurs when trying to open either the pdf or txt files:
"Cannot Open Page. Safari cannot open the page because it could not connect to the server."
So, why can't I open these on the iPad when I can do so on my (Win7) desktop?

Download iBooks from the App Store, then when you open a PDF in an email you are given the option to open it in iBooks.

Once opened in iBooks, the PDF is copied into iBooks for future use.
