If your phone supports that, then it will open. I have iPhone and iPad and the files open perfectly.

Google deployed lots of application for android. So have a look in android apps hope you will easily get the application to open your files.

Is your question relating to syncing these files with active sync because EAS imposes limits on file size unless you modify the policy, or are you wanting application information for android?
Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

If you open Powershell and type Get-ActiveSyncMailBoxPolicy you can see the Active Sync Policy settings, the default value for attachment size is unlimited but if you imposed a max attachment size and if your attachment is larger than this value, it wont' download.

Of course there is alsways the other option that Androids application of Active sync does not support attachments embedded in Calanders.

Ok, I just checked, it seems attachment downloads are not permitted on Android.

I have Android 2.3
Attachment handling sucks.

I have a LCWord .DOC reader installed, but when you try to open the attachment, it will save it on the media card and then you have to navigate to that and then open the file.

It's easier it to read it on the workstation :(

Attached ICAL doesnt get displayed either.
