Can't open email attachment (epub) on HD+

I emailed a 2mg epub book file as an attachment from Calibre as a work around aince I could not get my computer or Calibre to recognize the device in Win 8. The attachment shows up but I can't open it. does this have anything to do with the file size? I would certainly think you should be able to open this file as it's a reconized file type.

When you emailed it over, did it "zip" it?  Just a thought.

 

Do you have Open File Explorer? Can you access and try to open the file that way? (Just tried it with an already loaded  epub; gave me an option to open the epub with either the stock reader or Overdrive.)

Yes, that's what is suppose to happen. Strange because it constantly copies photos & other random attachment people send me that I don't want, don't open & would just delete. Every few days I have to go into my files to get rid of them. However, it apparently chokes on an actual book!
