How do i get attachment in a mobile device/smart phone when aattachment added in MS Outlook meeting request trigerred in outlook

Hi,
When I received a MS Outlook meeting request which has attachment, I can open the attached file in my computer. But I can not open this attachment using my mobile device (Smart phone). I can see the text message of meeting request in my mobile device but attachment can not be seen. Even I can not see whether there is any attachment or not when I read meeting request in my mobile device.
Is there any setting in MS Outlook when preparing the meeting request to make the recipient see attachment? Is there any setting in Mobile device to see the attachment? Mobile device brand does not make any difference. I have tested it with the various mobile devices.
Thanks a lot.

And have you tested with different mobile OS? So Apple, Android, Windows?
At least windows phones have an option, that only a part is downloaded and the remaining part including attachments are only downloaded by request from the mobile user.

Inside the owa setting there are lists of file extensions, which can be accessed from client, which accesses the server from a private or public network. Alternatively you can set the organizational owa policy in exchange.

For mobile devices, there is also a active sync organizational policy, where you enable or disable, if mobile clients can download attachement or even not.

This worked. (For mobile devices, there is also a active sync organizational policy, where you enable or disable, if mobile clients can download attachement or even not.)

For androis OS I found the menu item that I can download attachment as a default. But I could not for iOS (iphone) do you know where in iPhone settings?
Thank you for your interest

Resolution
To work around this issue, attachments should be sent via e-mail for users synchronizing with Exchange ActiveSync.


Does that mean it can not be seen in calendar?

So i can suggest a workaround for it, have a rule in your outlook that if a meeting has an attachment do forward it to you as an attachment

Or use OWA, even on a mobile....
If you also have apps to view them....
Even Windows Mobile doesn't show them, its not OWA, just the mobile calendar view...

But seriously...
If you work with mobile phones....
Imagine somebody invites and attaches a nice 20 MB PowerPoint presentation inside....
And this is distributed to hundred of mobile phones, even they sit in front of the computer....
Not sure if this is the Administrators favorite...
