    Since ICS upgrade, the standard e-mail program fails to download e-mail attachments from my provider (Net@ddress). This happens whether I try to do it manually or when I have the option "Download attachments" checked. Now when I open the e-mail and select the Attachments tab, it shows a continuously running progress bar as though it is downloading. However, it never completes the download. My Gmail account works fine, but not Net@ddress.

    I had no issues with Android 3.2.1 prior to the update. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

    The problem is gone, but I don't know the cure, sorry. All of a sudden everything was ok.
    Most of the time, there's no problem. Sometimes it is al long wait but the download succeeds.

    You might need to clear the cache of the Download Manager. Go into:

    Settings -> Apps -> All (tab) -> Download Manager
    Here tap Clear cache and for good measure Clear data
