S3 email client Screwing up Attachment file names

    This is a newly titled thread from my previous thread about not being able to read PDF files.

    I have the problem partially figured out. There is no problem with the pdf file, it is the Samsung ICS email client. What is happening is that the name of the attachement is getting modified and it drops the .pdf extension. So even though the client shows the attachment with the Acrobat logo, when it feeds it to Adobe or Polaris it is not recognized since it lacks the extension.

    I proved this by saving the file, renaming it with the .pdf extension and then opening it and it works fine. Also if I forward the email to gmail, the gmail client has no problems with the attachment as it doesn't screw up the name.

    So now my question is : Is there a fix for the email client on Samsung's ICS? This seems like a really stupid bug!

    The email client in S3 is horrible, use a 3rd party app instead
