    I am trying to download an attachment from my gmail account but it is only opening up the document. What do I need to do to get this document onto my HTC Hero?

    Long press the attachment, it will give you the option to save it.

    There isn't a spot to long press...there is just the file name and a preview button....it doesn nothing when you long press that section.

    Are you using the gmail app or accessing gmail through your browser.

    I don't think you can save through the app, but you can through your browser.
