I got a mail from someone, now I need to send a file (doc or xls file) in reply to that mail. I am not able to attach anything other than photos. Is there any way to do this.

I can send doc file as attachment, if I try to share doc file from files apps. But it creates new thread of mail. But cant do as reply to some mail.

This is very basic feature. I don't think I am expecting anything weird.


Windows phone 8.1 does not support this feature. Hence if you are using WP8.1 there is no way to attach a document in a reply. Only photos are supported.

The only way to send a document via mail is to share it from Files app or from Office. But as you said it will create a new thread.

With Windows10-Mobile it is now possible to attach a document in a reply.

    Might be worth noting that with Windows 10 Mobile, you can now attach documents to a reply...
