    I configured email account in android2.1 emulator and download the .docx files from mail attachment I get the path content://com.android.email.attachmentprovider/1/1/RAW

    I am invoking the "open" file in email client from my app.

    if look into the eclipse file explorer files are stored at path /data/data/com.android.email/databases/1.db_att/1

    I tried to read using openInputStream() on ContentResolver , its reading binary data.

    how to get the file name of the attachment and and how to access the files both in device and emulator in readable format ?

    I have set the permission in manifest as
    <uses-permission android:name="com.android.email.permission.ACCESS_PROVIDER" ></uses-permission>
    <uses-permission android:name="com.android.email.permission.READ_ATTACHMENT"></uses-permission>

    Thank you.
