    Default iFile alternative
    As Attachment Saver is not ready yet for iOS5, this iFile work around will get you to your email attachment you want (only tried on a POP3 email account)

    1) make a note of the email attachment you want
    2) open up iFile and go to where your emails are stored at
    Directory
    /var/mobile/Library/Mail
    3) select your email account folder
    4) select the INBOX.mbox folder
    5) select the Attachments folder
    6) pull the screen down to reveal the search window
    7) type in part or all of your attachment file name and click on hierarchy and iFile will display which folder it is in
    8) navigate to that folder. If there are no results from your search, you will have to go back to your email and hold your finger on the attachment till the Open In appears and then try again.
    9) if the Open In does not work as it is an unsupported file type, follow the next steps
    10) Forward the email and click on Include Attachments
    11) enter a to email address and click on Cancel and then Save Draft
    12) goto your Drafts folder and click on the email you just saved as a draft.
    13) now go back to iFile and this time navigate to your
    Drafts.mbox/Attachments folder and continue from step 6) above

    Is this a tutorial or what? You just basically wrote a bunch of steps down with no info on what it does.

    I'm just interested in what it does exactly. You might want to say exactly what it does in your original post so people know what they're doing.

    Hi, with iOS6.1 jailbroken Messages+ for Mail seems to be a good alternative. Not only can you attach files and photos to your email, but you can save your email attachments directly to your file system folders.
