How can I mms a video I received by email?

Hi,
A friend emailed me a video that I need to send to some of my youth group members, it's to promote an event.
How can I mms the video file, I have it in my mail app. It's a wmv, mail only gives me an option to open it in some other apps, not save it or send it as mms.

I don't have an iPhone infront of me so I'm not totally sure, but see if you can save the video attachment out of the mail app into your film reel / main storage on your iPhone.

Once you have the video saved on your iPhone such that you can access it using the camera app, you ought to be able to send it as an MMS by sending it just like how you would send any other photo or video that you took yourself.

I'm not sure if the iPhone supports this, so if you can't find any options for it, it is very possible that you simply can't do it.

It let's me open the attachment in oplayer or teamviewer or various other apps, but no "save" option, and none of the apps have the option to save or mms either :(
I managed to sent it to dropbox and then paste the public URL on Facebook and Twitter. But I'm seriously stuck with sending it on... I can't seem to find a way to put it on YouTube either. :(

I now own an iPhone 4 running iOS5 so I can come back to this question, and I found a way to do it!!

Once you have emailed the video to yourself

1) Go into the Mail app and open the email you sent with the video attached

2) Tap on the attachment and wait for it to download completely

3) Tap on the "reply" button on the bottom toolbar. On the context menu that appears tap on "Save Video"

4) Go to the Camera app, and go to the camera roll. You will see your new video in the camera roll. Tap on it.

5) Tap on the "share" button in the bottom toolbar, and tap "Message"

6) Fill out the appropriate fields to send the video as an MMS accordingly.

This worked for me using a short .MOV clip that I emailed to myself. Not sure how well it works with other video formats. Whatever video format you use the iPhone would need to be able to decode it. Probably "apple" video formats like quicktime would work the best.

When you tap the "share" button on step 5, there's also an option to upload to YouTube in IOS5.
