'[OT] Displaying emails on an iPhone'
2011\01\12@030808 by SME

I think that some email messages that I send to iPhone users may be
hard to read, even though they are easily readable on a PC.

I assume that screen size and formating limitations on an iPhone may
scramble the appearance of some messages.

My question is, are there any file formats which cannot be read at all
on an iPhone.
For instance will an iPhone read PDFs, XLS, DOC, DOCX OK or at all.

Are there any known limitations where the file must be opened on another system?

I don't know, but I'll be really really surprised if it can't display plain
text readably enough.

I use a program called DocsToGo and I can read and create PDFs, DOCs, XLS, JPG, GIF, HTM, and just about anything except ACCESS files. I can also transfer/syncronize these files between my PC and my iPhone and back.

Although iPhone does not display flash, so I can imagine some stupid
advertisements or some other "very funny" HTML formatted e-mail containing
flash, which of course will not being able to be displayed correctly.

Wow, I'm surprised how few replies you got. I have an iPhone, and I can read most emails and attachments, including everything you listed above.

Lately I found that I'm reading over half of the business emails on my phone, and writing/replying to about one third.
