I am not able to open zip files in my nexus 5's email app. When i try to open it gives an error saying"Unfortunately, you can't save or open this type of attachment.. Anybody has a solution for this. i have sent feedback to google through that app several times. But no response. I am surprised to know that a smartphone by a stalwart software company like google is facing problem like this. this is not an end to it. Problems like contacts sharing through SMS,native 3G video calling,contact copy to clipboard are also persisting. Isn't google bothered about all these small basic facilities to the users !!! If not then what & how different is it from any other device. in Moto phones some of these features are also lacking, but moto phones are able to open zip files. "

Yes it is the default email client. For using company email ID via outlook i can only configure the inbuilt email app. but this problem is not evident in Gmail app. In gmail app it opens the zip attachment and then gets redirected to the respective app installed on the phone for handling zip files

Yes I can reproduce the issue. I don't think there is a workaround.
Pretty crap
