Downloading attachement from Gmail

Hi,
I get epub-files sent to my gmail-account. I open the gmail for mobile devices in my PRS-T1 browser and try to download the epub. I tap on the link to the attachment and the download starts, but the file appears as a txt-file on the reader, not an epub-file. Could anyone help me with this? I want ReadBeam to mail me news to be read on my Sony reader.
Thanks,
Bjorn

hi bkv,
I have the same issue but a very simple workaround is to use the edocs page of your readbeam account. just login using the sony web broader and navigate to the edocs page where your current subscriptions are displayed and you'll find an option to directly download the current issue which will save as an epub and be located in your homescreen :-) hope this helps;-)
