    Now we can tap to choose from the list of options
    .
    What it means by file attachments is, any time we receive an email and have an attachment with it. An attachment could be a document, photo, or video, and they can take up a lot of space. That's why "Never" is currently selected. This is the default option. We can change this if we're working and receive a lot of attachments. We change it to anything between "Never" and "Always". There are different sizes such as 25 KB, 100 KB, 500 KB, 1 MB or 2 MB. We can also select "WiFi only". That means it will only download file attachments when using WiFi.
