    I cannot send, reply or forward an email with a picture or attachment on my S5. I already removed all email accts,re added and cleared cache. Any other suggestions?

    Have same exact problem with my S3 cannot send anything with a attachment so it hast to be something with the android OS. I am using Verizon as a carrier.

    Let's start with
    • the name of the app that you are using to send the attachment
    • the type of Email account you are using on that app
    • When this happens, are you on WiFi? or using mobile data?
    • the size of the attachment
    • the type of attachment (extension)
    • the source of the attachment (is it on your phone? or are you trying to attach from online storage)
    • Does the Email allow the attachment? or is it failing to attach itself?
    • What happens when you click the send button? Does it stay in the outbox? Does it present an error message? Does it strip the attachment and send the Email?

    I don't think it had anything to do with the OS, because it works fine on other devices (including mine), and I run the Android OS too :)
    It is more likely an app setting or email server setting, or a bug in the app.
