    In order to download attachments, as opposed to viewing them, you have to use the web interface for GMail.

    yeah, it's less than ideal :) but it works. If you are doing this a lot, check out Dropbox. You put the files in your dropbox folder on your computer and you can get to it from the Dropbox app on the Hero.
