Hi Guys,

Is there a way to download e-mails onto a Samsung S2 Phone in text only?
Setting the phone not to download images or banners in the body of the messages?

Samsung Galaxy S2? Go to the email account setting and choose the "size to retrieve e-mail". This would limit the push settings and if you want to see the rest of the e-mail you can download it after opening the e-mail. That's the only option available.

The problem we have, is that the phone won't download attachments, until the e-mail body is completely downloaded.

Some senders include very large images in their e-mail body, such as signature images.

Hence you have to wait for a 2MB image to download, before you're able to download an attachment of 30kb.

Will this setting resolve this problem?

I wont be needing to download more than the content specified on that setting and still be able to open attachements. But test and post the results.

Verdict;
We set the body-download at 100kb.

When included an image of 2MB in the body of the message, the phone first downloads the full body, before start downloading any attachment.

Needless to say, the way in which Blackberry handles messages and attachments is much more efficient, especially in areas with low bandwidth.
