The file picker dialog the stock E-Mail app uses is different from the G-Mail one. The G-mail one defaults to only photos, videos, etc too.... but gives you the option of enabling other apps to hook into it (such as file managers) so I can attach any type of file from anywhere on my device.

.... the stock (and I assume made by HTC) E-Mail app for anything that is not a g-mail account.... does not. It only allows Photos, Videos, Documents, Etc. There is a "File" option if you scroll to the bottom..... but this is practically the same thing as the above options, as it only lists recent files (only types it understands) or files sorted by type, etc. It doesn't let me browse the file system.

Is there any way to either choose any file I want, or add a file manager to the list, without basically downloading a different e-mail app?
