I had a requirement on Contact we have Send An Email Button in ActivityHistory.When you click on

Send An Email and Attach a file to the Email,Email is sent and a task is created in Activity history.

Now I need to get the Attachment that is associated with that Email.


Is it Possible to get the Attachment that is added to Email.If any on eknow about this Please help me.






Hi srikeerthi,

       What you wish to achieve cannot be attained If you will be using standard functionality of salesforce. You have to create a custom button for  sending an email functionality,TASK has relatedlist object Attachments,when you override this functionlity then you will be able to attach documents with email.


Did this answer your question? If not, let me know what didn't work, or if so, please mark it solved. 


Hi Ispita


You are saying to create Custom button for sending the email,then the attachment that is attached to that

task will be stored as Document.Then I can retrieve the Attachment from Document.Is that the Same you are
