    How can I send files (data or pictures) as attachments using hotmail on Thrive. I can't find the option of attaching any file when I am sending an email through hotmail on thrive.

    I even tried to set up my hotmal account on thrive using mail app but I don't know how to do that either. It asks me whether I want to add POP mail or SMTP mail or IMAP mail.
    Can someone please let me know how can I do this?

    Hello Asad, congratulations on your new Thrive and welcome to Android Tablets. Sorry to hear you're having a problem and I'm moving your thread to the Toshiba Thrive section to see if someone there can help you.

    To set it up using the email app just enter your username and password but don't choose "Manual setup" instead just choose "Next" that will configure the account for you automatically. You can also try using a browser that is in "Desktop mode" and navigate to hotmail.com, login, create your email email and you should see the option for attachments.

    I couldn't work with either method :(.
    When I try to set it up using mail app, I didn't do it manually. I just pressed next, but then it asked me to choose one of the three options, POP, SMTP, IMAP. I chose all three one by one in three attempts, but none works.
    Then I tried using normal browser on tablet and logged into hotmail. I can compose a new email but I couldn't find anywhere to attach a file.
    Help me please:confused:

    Ok, try the manual setup. Enter your email and password and select manual setup, select Exchange, next for domain\username enter your email address and enter your password in the password field, for server enter m.hotmail.com and make sure Use Secure Connection (SSL) is Enabled and click next. Look over the options in the next screen and select next again and next screen will want you to choose a name to give your account (optional) once you have done that it should be all setup. As for the browser, if it is not on "desktop mode" it will take you to the mobile version of hotmail which doesn't have the attach file option. Use something like Dolphin from the market and change the UAstring to Dekstop.

    I tried this but when I enter my email address, do I need to put in like \asadali01@hotmail.com or plain asadali01@hotmail.com without "\".? Anyway, I tried both and got the message that the path could not be found. What am I doing wrong?

    I have downloaded Dolphin and it opens up hotmail as in normal PC and is good.
