    In order to download in the browser, you need to install a file manager like Astro. There's a setting in Astro under "Helper Apps" called "Enable Browser Download." Once it is enabled, you can download files from the browser. I don't know of any other way to enable downloads from the browser. Good luck! :D

    Try this instead of tapping the detail long press on the attachment or pic to see if a tab pops up scroll down that tap to see if there is an option to download

    I have two hotmail accounts on my phone, and you can download files attached to emails from them just fine.

    The difference is that I am not using the web browser interface - I am using the (HTC) "Mail" app directly, configured to pull/send mail from/to Hotmail.

    Steps.

    1) Mail -> Menu -> More -> New account -> Other (POP3/IMAP)
    2) enter your e-mail address, ex: joeuser@hotmail.com
    3) enter your password (easier if you tap the "Show password" button)
    4) Click "Manual setup"

    Incoming settings
    Protocol: POP
    Email address: joeuser@hotmail.com
    Username: joeuser@hotmail.com
    Password: (should already be here, enter it if not)
    POP Server: pop3.live.com
    Security Type: SSL
    Server port: 995

    Click Next (setup will check your login w/ the pop3.live.com machine)

    Outgoing server settings
    x Login required (select this)
    Username: joeuser@hotmail.com
    Password: (enter same value as Incoming settings above)
    SMTP Server: smtp.live.com
    Security Type: TLS
    Server port: 25

    Click Next/Finish
